Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member John Sebastian to perform at Fairfield Theatre Company’s StageOne on September 22.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member John Sebastian returns to Fairfield Theatre Company’s StageOne at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 22, as he brings the sound of the 1960’s rock revolution to this intimate venue.

The contributions by Sebastian over the past five decades have become an enduring part of American musical history. Sebastian was credited for a series of top-ten hits, including “Daydream,” “Summer in the City,” and “Welcome Back.” He has had a wide-ranging career as a singer, songwriter and musician. As the leader of the folk-rock band The Lovin’ Spoonful, Sebastian was a multi-instrumentalist. He is also renowned for his harmonica skills, which he used to accompany a variety of musicians, including Judy Collins, Crosby, Stills & Nash, the Doors, Bob Dylan, the Everly Brothers, Art Garfunkel, Gordon Lightfoot, Laura Nyro, Graham Parker, Dolly Parton, Peter, Paul 7 Mary, John Prine and Bonnie Raitt.

During his time in The Lovin' Spoonful, Sebastian led the charge in the American response to British Invasion bands like The Beatles after leaving the Lovin' Spoonful in 1968, Sebastian embarked on a successful solo career. Throughout the '70s and '80s, Sebastian continued to record and tour, pleasing old fans and winning new ones.

Sebastian was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000 and continues to perform regularly at Carnegie Hall and a number of folk festivals as he spreads the gospel of American roots music.

Sebastian’s StageOne concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 22, with doors to open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $50 in advance, with a member discount of $5. Buy tickets online at http://www.fairfieldtheatre.org or stop in to the ticket office at 70 Sanford St., Fairfield, CT.
