“Playing a gig on your 50th birthday,” says singer-songwriter Michael Eck. “This only happens once.”
And so Eck will spend his 50th birthday in the spotlight at the Steamer No. 10 Theatre in Albany on Saturday (April 19). These days, you can frequently see Eck performing as a member of such bands as Ramblin Jug Stompers, Lost Radio Rounders, Frank Jaklitsch & Friends, the Berkshire Ramblers and more. But on Saturday, he’ll be going it alone, drawing selections from four solo albums and entertaining friends and fans in his “maximum solo acoustic” mode.
