The Elliott Museum in Stuart will kick off its new Blueseum Sessions concert series, featuring blues guitarist Gabe Stillman and his three-piece band, on Thursday, November 18, at 8 p.m.. Tickets are $20 and may be purchased online. Capacity is limited to 100 seats in the Forum Room at the Elliott Museum. Stillman will be the first of many upcoming Blueseum concert events at the Elliott.
While the Stillman Band’s sound is unmistakably rooted in the blues, the band draws from the deep well of all American roots music. Since landing in the final eight of the 35th Annual International Blues Challenge in Memphis and receiving the esteemed Gibson Guitar Award, the band has focused on expanding its footprint on national and international levels.
Concert-goers can make the evening a “Blues Night Out,” with a special all-inclusive dinner menu at the Philly Down South Bar & Restaurant, which is located on the museum’s second floor. The menu is viewable here. Call (561) 718-9733 to reserve a table.
Based in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, Stillman formed the band in 2015, shortly after graduating from Berklee College of Music in Boston. His first self-produced release, “The Grind,” received wide acclaim. His second release, “Flying’ High,” is backed by the legendary Nighthawks. Stillman’s currently producing his first full-length release with 15 tracks and 13 originals with the Boston-based Vizztone Record Label. This robust project was guided by famed musician and producer Anson Funderburgh.
