4:30-6:30 PM EST

Singer-songwriter-guitarist Ricky Byrd’s new CD which he describes as “one part acoustic soul, one part rock n roll” -marks quite a departure from his days with Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. Byrd is still rail-thin, still has the haystack of hair and a truckload of attitude, but maturity has served to deepen and expand his talent. Byrd says that the work on his latest project with producer Ray Kennedy “is a natural progression. I went back to the college of musical knowledge, listening to the songs that still, to this day, raise the hair on my arms. Digging deep, trying to find the secret ingredient, studying the craft of songwriting. Now I feel like I’ve got a pretty cool batch of my own songs and I’m ready to show them to the world.”

Billboard described Byrd’s last effort, a limited edition live CD called, with typical Byrd-esque humor, “Tough Room This World”: For many, Ricky Byrd needs no introduction. For others, a brief step back in time may be needed. After…Byrd parted ways with the Blackhearts (he) found himself collaborating with the likes of Roger Daltrey (and) Ian Hunter.

Apparently, others discovered what Jett had known all along: Byrd is one accomplished musician, singer and songwriter.” In fact, Jett and Daltrey (on his solo release “Rocks In The Head”) are among the many artists who have cut covers of Byrd’s material he’s had over 45 of his songs recorded by others — and his music has also been featured on television and in films.

Download Ricky Byrd’s new single “Broken Is A Place” to a CD and bring it with you to the The Memorial Day Weekend Free Concert Saturday May 28, 2011. Ricky will signing the downloaded CD’s at 6:30 PM EST.
