A rock ‘n’ roll legend presents his one-man show in Annapolis. Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac is due to perform at Maryland Hall on November 13.

Singer, guitarist, songwriter and producer are some terms defining Buckingham. However, his impact on Fleetwood Mac – where he wrote and produced several Top Ten hits, including “Go Your Own Way” and “Big Love” – is what stands out the most. Under Buckingham’s leadership, Fleetwood Mac became one of the best-selling and most adored rock bands of all time.

Buckingham was sadly kicked out of Fleetwood Mac in early 2018. It came after a five-decade run with the band, which he helped revive not once but twice. Unfazed, the artist turned to touring behind the album “Solo Anthology”, which he released in October of the same year. The following year, just as he resumed work on solo material, Buckingham underwent emergency open-heart surgery, during which his vocal cords were damaged by the insertion of a breathing tube.

Buckingham was only able to speak in a barely audible whisper in the weeks following the operation.

“There was a period where I wasn’t sure what I was going to be able to do,” Buckingham said in documents provided by his publicist. “It became clear that whatever was going to go back to normal would happen on its own.”

It took six months before Buckingham got to the point where he started not caring anymore.

Her latest album was released last year and is called “Lindsey Buckingham”. It is the artist’s seventh solo album and his first solo release since 2011’s “Seeds We Sow”. The self-titled album features Buckingham’s recognizable guitar work and vocal layering, particularly on songs such as as “Power Down”, “Scream” and “Swan Song”. Elsewhere, Buckingham pays homage to single “Time” by the 1960s folk band Pozo-Seco Singers. It’s a song he’s admired since he was a teenager, and it’s a song he’s always had. intended to resume.

Buckingham said he intended to make a pop album, but he wanted songs that sounded more like art than pop.

“As you get older, I hope you continue to ground yourself a little more in the craft of what you do,” Buckingham said. “For me, getting older has probably helped to reinforce the innocence and idealism that hopefully has always been there.”

As a 73-year-old solo artist, Buckingham notes that he always aims to find new things.

“If you play all the instruments, which I am, everything becomes a tool of discovery,” Buckingham said.

According to Laura Price, Marketing Director of Rams Head On Stage, Buckingham will perform at Maryland Hall for the first time in his career.

“He’s really been such an influential artist and songwriter,” Price said. “He has a huge following. We thought it would be perfect for Maryland Hall.

Buckingham’s first tour in three years will feature several songs from his new album, as well as solo favorites and Fleetwood Mac. Tickets start at $75 and are available at www.marylandhall.org/events. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show is scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m. Maryland Hall is located at 801 Chase Street in Annapolis.
