Archaic Cannon Records artist Nate Currin is wrapping up his 60-date U.S. tour for his sophomore full-length album, “The Pilgrim,” released Aug. 6.
He’ll stop in Crestview along the way, performing at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 31 at Grace Redeemer PCA Church, 2799 Goodwin Ave. Admission is free.
“The Pilgrim” is an 18-song concept album centered on “The Pilgrim’s Progress,” written in 1678 by English writer and preacher John Bunyan. Currin’s album is his non-religious musical interpretation of this work.
“What I really wanted to do was weave my own life into Bunyan’s story. It’s about a man — in some cases, me — on a journey and allof the struggles he endures, the hardships he faces, the people he meets, all of the various things that happen along the way.”
The Atlanta-raised and now San Francisco-based singer-songwriter has traveled to more than 20 countries, toured with Blues Traveler and Neon Trees, been featured on MTV and received a first ballot Grammy nomination.
