Lucinda Williams & Her Band
Roots music icon and one of the most celebrated singer/songwriters of her generation comes to the Opera House.
Lucinda Williams has traveled a long road since her 1979 debut, Ramblin’ on My Mind, followed by Happy Woman Blues, her first album of originals released forty years ago in 1980. (She says that she’s still “the same girl” except that now “I have a bigger fan base and I can afford to stay at better hotels.”) Over the course of fourteen remarkable albums, three Grammy awards, and countless accolades, including Time’s Songwriter of the Year of 2001, Williams is one of our most revered artists, beloved for her singular vocals and extraordinary songs. Her recent double albums, Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone (2014) and Ghosts of Highway 20 (2016), released on her own label, received some of the best reviews of her career. General admission, doors open at 7 pm for seating. Advance discount tickets $45, available only from the box office at 207-633-5159 (open Wed – Fri from 10-2).
