Multiple GRAMMY-winner Lucinda Williams is one of American music’s most uncompromising and consistently fascinating writers and performers. Over the course of her four-decade recording career, the Louisiana-born singer has moved through the dust-bowl starkness of her 1978 debut Ramblin’ (recorded on the fly with a mere $250 budget) to the stately elegance of 2007’s West (which Vanity Fair called “the record of a lifetime”) to last year’s Blessed, which AllMusic calls one her finest recordings to date.
“Perhaps America’s greatest songwriter for just over two decades. . . . Unique, deeply felt songs that offer, in their own way, the redemptive power of the blues.”—Huffington Post
“Williams radiates such outlaw cool that it’s surreal to think that she’s currently enjoying mainstream success. . . . Few could match her extraordinary voice.”—The Guardian
“The three-time Grammy winner demonstrated why Time magazine called her America’s best songwriter in 2002. She is a songwriter’s songwriter, with a poet’s sensibility, a journalist’s attention to detail and a novelist’s storytelling skills.”—StarTribuneBack to Concerts
