HIGHBRIDGE SPRING WATER and the volunteers of the Troubadour Concert Series are proud to present the return of the legendary MELISSA ETHERIDGE to the historic Lexington Opera House for an evening of unforgettable songs and new music from her forthcoming album The Medicine Show.

Melissa Etheridge is one of rock music’s great female icons. Her critically acclaimed eponymous debut album was certified double platinum. Etheridge’s popularity built around such memorable songs as “Bring Me Some Water,” “No Souvenirs” and “Ain’t It Heavy” for which she won her first Grammy for Best Female Rock Vocal. Etheridge hit her commercial and artistic stride with her fourth album, Yes I Am, featuring the massive hits “I’m the Only One” and “Come to My Window,” a searing song of longing that brought her a second Grammy. The six times platinum album spent more than two and a half years on the album chart. Etheridge is also an Oscar winner for Best Original Song. Melissa made her Broadway debut in Green Day’s rock opera, American Idiot, and received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Special Offer! One (1) download of Melissa Etheridge’s forthcoming album, The Medicine Show, is included with every pair of tickets purchased for this show. You will receive an email with more details about this offer approximately (7) days after your purchase. Enjoy information about the new album here: https://www.melissaetheridge.com

 

Coming Sunday October 20 – LYRIC THEATRE

Earls of Leicester with Jerry Douglas

Ticket on sale NOW at the LYRIC THEATRE 859-280-2218 or online CLICK HERE

HIGHBRIDGE SPRING WATER and the volunteers of the Troubadour Concert Series present: Multi-Grammy winning 2x IBMA Bluegrass Entertainer of the Year The Earls of Leicester (pro: LESTER) with JERRY DOUGLAS come to the historic Lyric Theatre on Sunday October 20 for a 7PM concert. Shawn Camp (guitar, lead vocals) – Charlie Cushman (banjo, guitars) – Jerry Douglas (Dobro, vocals) – Johnny Warren (fiddle, bass vocals) – Jeff White (mandolin, vocals)

When the Earls of Leicester formed in 2013, their mission was ambitious but exact: to preserve and promote the legacy of bluegrass legends Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs, in hopes of reviving the duo’s music for longtime admirers and introducing a new generation to their genre-defining sound. Within a year of releasing their self-titled debut, the Nashville-based six-piece far surpassed their own expectations, winning a Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album and earning six awards from the International Bluegrass Music Association. Now, with their first live album, Earls of Leicester offer up a selection of songs that fully capture the pure joy and supreme musicianship that propel their every performance. Made up entirely of songs from 1954 to 1965, Earls of Leicester Live combines classic tunes with more obscure numbers unearthed thanks to the band’s encyclopedic familiarity with Flatt and Scruggs’s body of work. To that end, the setlist includes notorious crowd-pleasers like “Martha White Theme Song” (originally penned as a jingle for Martha White Self-Rising Flour) and “Foggy Mountain Breakdown” (a breakneck-paced, banjo-driven instrumental popularized thanks to its use in Bonnie and Clyde)
