      EVENT DETAILS
      Ray Wylie Hubbard with special guest Van Preston

      Ray Wylie Hubbard writes the kind of songs that make you want to ride along no matter where he's going, because you know it's gonna get strange somewhere along the way. The references to Muddy Waters being as deep as William Blake ("I really do believe it,'' Ray says) and lipstick pickups, resonator slides, the dreams of drunken poets, deceased call girls, opium, wasp's nests, clouds growing a tail, his ability to segue seamlessly from primal exclamations of carnal lust into songs about salvation without pausing for irony; and a craftsmanship that manages to rhyme mescaline and gasoline and Volkswagen with dragon while painting vivid portraits of characters both real and unreal, all evoke a sense of place that is larger than life but in no way made up. Nominated for 3 Americana music awards in 2010 including Artist of the Year and Album of the Year, Ray Wylie Hubbards latest album cements his place in the American songwriter cannon.

      Cost: 18.00
