Lucinda Williams and Miller Williams, November 29, 8pm
Lucinda Williams has been hailed by Rolling Stone as “one of the sharpest, most uncompromising singer-songwriters of any gender.” In spite of having released just eight albums over the course of a rather lengthy career, this Grammy-winning artist rarely disappoints and albums such as Car Wheels on a Gravel Road and World Without Tears prove just that.
In what’s certain to be both a captivating and moving show, the Lake Charles, Louisiana native is slated to perform with her father, acclaimed poet Miller Williams, for an evening of music and poetry.
