Community Arts Center

The Community Arts Center in downtown Williamsport will host Blues Traveler on Saturday, Oct. 19, as part of the band’s fall tour, celebrating the 30th anniversary of its iconic, award-winning album, “Four.” Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. concert are available at the CAC site

Regarded as the album that catapulted Blues Traveler into the mainstream, “Four” was the band’s fourth and most commercially successful release to date. The record peaked at No. 8 on the Billboard 200 chart and generated two Top 40 hits, including “Run-Around” and “Hook,” which charted at No. 8 and No. 23, respectively, on the Billboard Hot 100. “Run-Around” also earned the band their first Grammy Award in 1996 for “Best Rock Vocal Performance By A Duo Or Group” and set a record upon its release as the longest-charting radio single in Billboard history. Perhaps more impressive than its accolades, though, is the indelible impression that “Four” made on the Americana music landscape as a whole. Weaving a unique blend of blues, rock, folk and roots with catchy choruses and bold rhythms that could only be defined as transformative, the record was hailed as one of the most genre-defining albums of its time; it is also one of the most enduring.
