      EVENT DETAILS
      Lucinda Williams


      Three-time Grammy Award winner, Lucinda Williams has been carving her own path for more than three decades now. Born in Lake Charles, Louisiana, Williams had been imbued with a culturally rich, economically poor worldview. Several years of playing the hardscrabble clubs gave her a solid enough footing to record a self-titled album that would become a touchstone for the embryonic Americana movement helping launch a thousand musical ships along the way.While not a huge commercial success at the time Lucinda Williams (aka, the Rough Trade album) retained a cult reputation, and finally got the reception it deserved upon its reissue in 2014. Jim Farber of New Yorks Daily News hailed the reissue by saying Listening again proves it to be that rarest of beasts: a perfect work. Theres not a chord, lyric, beat or inflection that doesnt pull at the heart or make it soar.For much of the next decade, Williams moved around the country, stopping in Austin, Los Angeles, Nashville, and turning out work that won immense respect within the industry (winning a Grammy for Mary Chapin Carpenters version of Passionate Kisses) and a gradually growing cult audience. While her recorded output was sparse for a time, the work that emerged was invariably hailed for its indelible impressionism like 1998s Car Wheels on a Gravel Road, which notched her first Grammy as a performer.The past decade brought further development, both musically and personally, evidenced on albums like West (2007), which All Music Guide called flawlessdestined to become a classic and Blessed (2011), which the Los Angeles Times dubbed a dynamic, human, album, one thats easy to fall in love with. Those albums retained much of Williams trademark melancholy and southern Gothic starkness, but also exuded more rays of light and hope. This all lead to the 2014 release of Williams first double studio album Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone. The album received overwhelming praise from the media and fans, thus proving that Williams songwriting is as strong and important as it has ever been.
