Live at the Winspear – Series Announcements
Live at the Winspear is proud to present:
Lucinda Williams – Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone Tour – July 28th 8:00pm
Lucinda Williams has been maneuvering down a path all her own for more than three decades, having been imbued with a “culturally rich, economically poor” worldview. Her 11th album, Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone, is easily the most ambitious creation in a body of work that’s long on ambition. Over the course of two discs, Williams leaves no emotional crevice left unexplored, drinking deeply from a well of inspiration that culminates with an offering that overflows with delta-infused country soul.
Tickets now on sale through the Winspear Box Office.
All tickets $52 plus applicable service charges.
The Milk Carton Kids
FRI, OCTOBER 9, 2015 at 8PM
Enmax Hall, Winspear Centre
Cultural purveyors from Garrison Keillor to T Bone Burnett to Billy Bragg have hailed The Milk Carton Kids’ importance among a group of new folk bands, both expanding and contradicting the rich tradition that precedes them. Yet while some of the band’s many accolades reference a specific genre, the duo quickly transcends those tags with clear inflections of jazz, classical, even the dark lyricism of modern “alternative.”

Hawksley Workman is not afraid to be strange. After over a decade in the business, this hyper-prolific, perpetually restless creative force continues to push the boundaries of experience and the heights of his successes well outside the comfort zone. In fact, Hawksley Workman’s comfort zone is probably not all the comforting to most: it’s left of left field and nowhere near the beaten path. Call him a lone wolf, an odd duck or a strange bird; just don’t call him ordinary.

Enmax Hall, Winspear Centre
Paco Peña embodies both authenticity and innovation in flamenco. As guitarist, composer, dramatist, producer and artistic mentor he has transformed perceptions of this archetypal Spanish art form.
Soweto Gospel Choir
Monday December 14th at 8:00 p.m.
Soweto Gospel Choir was formed to celebrate the unique and inspirational power of African Gospel music. The 24-strong choir, under the direction of Beverly Bryer, draws on the best talent from the many churches in and around Soweto. The choir is dedicated to sharing the joy of faith through music with audiences around the world.
“Dazzling and unified…..Soweto Gospel Choir was as much to look at as to listen to. The human spirit – this you couldn’t miss.”
-Los Angeles Times
