Hal Ketchum returns to the Roy’s Hall stage for an encore performance on Saturday, October 28th. Hal will be accompanied by longtime friend and sideman Kenny Grimes on guitar. The show will feature a supporting set by up-and-coming country artist Travis Linville.
Ketchum has sold more than 5 million albums, racking up a half-dozen Top 10 hits — including staples like “Small Town Saturday Night”, “Past The Point Of Rescue” and “Hearts Are Gonna Roll”
In the 1980’s Hal was a young cabinet maker from Gruene, TX, who wrote his own songs about love, longing, and life in the American South. He hit the country market shortly after artists like Lyle Lovett, Steve Earle, and Travis Tritt, three likeminded troubadours who also wrote their own material. A bemused Earle called the movement “the great credibility scare of 1990,” laughing at the fact that country music — typically a conservative genre — was suddenly being steered by young, creative wild men.
Travis Linville was named one of the “10 New Country Artists You Need to Know” in Rolling Stone April 2017.
Tickets to Hal Ketchum at Roy’s Hall are $28 in advance / $33 day-of-show.
