Syracuse blues guitarist Colin Aberdeen will open. Admission costs $30, call 1-800-838-3006.

"Although we're starting with some acoustic shows, stay tuned," said promoter Tom Honan of Live Space Entertainment. "We'll also be producing some eclectic concerts, from R&B to children's programs and everything in between."
Honan is partnering with CazCares, a local food pantry and he's encouraging concertgoers to bring non-perishable foods to the shows.
"The SongStage series will be a wonderful opportunity for Catherine Cummings Theatre to be a major venue for national, regional and local artists," said Colleen Prossner, theatre director. "We see great benefits for Cazenovia College and for Central New York."
Barrere joined Little Feat in 1972, while Tackett was added in 1987.
Some of Barrere's best known contributions to Little Feat as a songwriter include "Skin It Back," "Down on the Farm" and "Feats Don't Fail Me Now." Tackett, who also plays mandolin, has contributed songs to the Little Feat repertoire such as "Fool Yourself" and "In a Town like This."
In addition to their recordings with the band, Barrere and Tackett have released two duo discs, "Live from North Caf " and "Live in the UK," plus a DVD, "Sights and Sounds."
