Joining Nachmanoff will be Mike Lindauer on harmony vocals and fretless bass. Jon Doll will open the show with a few of his own songs.

Nachmanoff ( has toured the United States and the world for more than 15 years, both on his own and as Al Stewart’s (“Year of the Cat”) opening act, verbal sparring partner, harmony vocalist and lead guitarist.

As a side player (guitar, piano, bass, accordion and more), he’s worked with Stewart on a regular basis, and has nine albums under his belt. He’s been described as having “an acoustic style that’s somewhere between the easygoing charm of Arlo Guthrie and the raw energy of Bruce Springsteen.”

“Step Up” is Nachmanoff latest release. It was produced by Ronan Chris Murphy (King Crimson, Steve Morse), and features musicians Bob Malone (John Fogerty), Ian Sheridan (Jason Mraz) and Victor Bisetti (Los Lobos); and vocalists Al Stewart, Rosemary Butler (Jackson Browne and James Taylor), John Wicks of powerpop band The Records, and Liz Bligan.

Sing Out! magazine praised his songwriting as “… heartfelt, inspired … with a delivery both biting and assured.”
