Patty Griffin

with Scott Miller

Tickets 859-280-2218 after 1PM or ONLINE CLICK HERE

Patty Griffin is a Grammy-Award winning artist who has achieved great acclaim for her songwriting as well as her powerful voice. Her first two albums, Living With Ghosts and Flaming Red, are considered seminal albums in the singer-songwriter genre, while Children Running Through won Best Album and led to her being named Best Artist at the 2007 Americana Music Awards. She won the Grammy for Downtown Church, her 2010 gospel album. Her songs have been covered by a myriad of artists including Emmylou Harris, The Dixie Chicks, Joan Baez and Bette Midler. She has also became a member of Band of Joy, the group in which leader Robert Plant and his cohorts meld British and American folk, rock and spiritual music.

Very much in the traditions of American transcendental writer Ralph Waldo Emerson, and mystical poets like Rumi and Rainer Maria Rilke, Patty Griffin grounds her themes of love and mystery in the experience and rhythms of the everyday, the stuff of life.

 

 

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)

Keb Mo

Ticket on sale SOON 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 Keb Mo’s Jingle Bell Jamboree! Fresh off the GRAMMY-Award winning album TajMo, prolific Blues and Americana musician KebMo‘ returns his first solo record in five years.

The Reflection is the first new studio album by Keb Mo since Suitcase in 2006. Keb Mo is a three-time Grammy Award winner for Best Contemporary Blues Album; and a key figure in the acclaimed 2003 PBS series Martin Scorsese Presents The Blues. But The Reflection is not, in essence, a blues album. In sound and spirit, it’s closer to the work of African-American “folk soul” singer/songwriters like Bill Withers, Bobby Womack, and Terry Callier – in a sound that is truly and uniquely his own.
