Described by Time Magazine as ‘America’s greatest songwriter’ Lucinda Williams is one of rock’s most uncompromising and consistently fascinating writers and performers.
Over the course of a recording career that’s now in its fourth decade, the Louisiana-born singer and three-time Grammy Award winner has navigated terrain as varied as the dust-bowl starkness of her 1978 debut Ramblin’ (recorded on the fly with a mere $250 budget), the stately elegance of 2007’s West which Vanity Fair called ‘the record of a lifetime’ and the emotional spectrum of her most recent release, Blessed, which features Elvis Costello on guitar. With reports of a new album possibly in 2013, this show reunites Williams with her long-time collaborator and friend guitarist Doug Pettibone.
British singer/songwriter Jimmy Livingstone has been described as 'a modern-day Glen Campbell crossed with Richard Hawley'. His debut album, One eye open, one eye closed, featured Doug Pettibone amongst its musicians.

‘Williams radiates such outlaw cool that it’s surreal to think that she’s currently enjoying mainstream success… few could match her extraordinary voice’
