Ten years ago, local singer-songwriter Ryan Humbert released Old Souls, New Shoes. Humbert recorded the album in Nashville in 2008 with producer Eli “Lij” Shaw. It features members of Third Eye Blind, the Counting Crows, the Black Crowes, the Dixie Chicks, Sheryl Crow’s band and the Nashville Opera.

Now, Humbert just announced plans to celebrate its anniversary with a special concert at Gervasi Vineyard. At the event, which takes place at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 18, Humbert will perform with a band that includes longtime bandmates Emily Bates, Ben Evans, Erin Vaughn, Brian Poston, Brian Piper and Brandon Covey. In addition, Michael Houff will lead a string quartet.

It'll be the first Ryan Humbert Band show in 19 months and the only one in 2018. The band will perform the Old Souls, New Shoes album in its entirety for the first time ever. The concert will also feature “a few choice cuts” from Humbert’s original music catalog.

Humbert will also release a newly remastered deluxe edition the album that'll be available that evening. It will feature new artwork and six bonus tracks, including original demos, a never-before-heard album outtake, a remix of “Sideways” and a newly recorded version of the track “People Standing Still.”

Ticket prices are $19 for general admission and $39 for a deluxe ticket, which includes a reserved seat, a copy of the reissued album, a glass of wine and a Q&A with the band before the show.
