LUCINDA WILLIAMS

Sponsored By: Wells Fargo

Venue: TD Arena at College of Charleston

Duration: Approximately 1 hour, 15 minutes

Overview

“…breathtaking vocal delivery and unflinching honesty.” —Dallas Observer

Over the course of a recording career now in its fourth decade, Louisiana-born singer and guitarist Lucinda Williams has established a reputation as an uncompromising and consistently fascinating writer and performer, earning kudos from artists as diverse as Mary Chapin Carpenter and Elvis Costello.  She learned the importance of professional integrity around the same time most kids are learning their ABCs, thanks in a large part to her award-winning poet father Miller Williams, who invested her with a “culturally rich, but economically poor” upbringing where artistic expression was of primary importance.  She would hone her vision playing hardscrabble clubs around the country, absorbing the influence of sources as varied as Bob Dylan and Lightnin’ Hopkins.  Adept at painting landscapes of the soul, Williams illuminates the spirit’s shadowy nooks and shimmering crannies. This is never more evident than in live performance where she weaves together each show from her extraordinary catalog, each different from the one before as if it was a new collection of a master writer’s stories.

Please note: the correct start time for Lucinda Williams’ performance on June 4 is 8pm.
