Lucinda Williams

Live at the Winspear is proud to present:
Lucinda Williams – Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone Tour
 Tuesday, July 28th, 2015
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 go on sale Friday April 10th at 10:00 am through the Winspear Box Office.
All tickets $52 plus applicable service charges.


The Decemberists
