BETHLEHEM, PA—Grammy Award-winning guitarist Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac kicks off the new Yuengling Light Lager Concert Series at the ArtsQuest Center’s Musikfest Café presented by Yuengling, 101 Founders Way, Bethlehem, on June 10 at 8:30 p.m.  Tickets for the concert are $50-$60 and will go on sale starting Tues., April 17, 10 a.m., to ArtsQuest Members and Fri., April 20, 10 a.m., to the public.

“An Intimate Evening with Lindsey Buckingham” features the acclaimed artist performing Fleetwood Mac classics, hits from his solo career and songs from his newest release, Seeds We Sow. The predominant musical force behind such Mac albums as the Grammy winning Rumours and the innovative Tusk, Buckingham has also created a critically acclaimed body of solo work that has yielded such hits as “Trouble,” “Go Insane” and “Holiday Road.” He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with Fleetwood Mac in 1998, has won countless awards, sold out venues around the world and helped define the sound of rock for the past three decades.  Seeds We Sow, Buckingham’s first solo album since 2008’s Gift of Screws, was released in September 2011. The record debuted at No. 5 on Billboard’s Independent Albums charts and No. 6 on the Rock Albums charts.

Designed to showcase some of music’s most innovative and creative artists, the Yuengling Light Lager Concert Series will welcome a variety of rock, pop, folk, blues and other artists to the Musikfest Café presented by Yuengling throughout the year.
