An intimate evening with

LUCINDA WILLIAMS

Vicar Street

12th May 2013.

 

 

3 Time Grammy Award winner Lucinda Williams has announced she will perform a solo concert at Dublin’s Vicar St on Sunday 12th May.

Born in 1953, Lucinda Williams grew up listening to blues, country and folk music. She learned to play guitar and started writing songs in her teens. In 1979, Williams released her first album, Ramblin' on My Mind and has since released 11 albums in total. In 1988, Williams began to attract notice for her distinctive style, earning critical praise for her self-titled album. Her reputation as a singer-songwriter grew when she released Sweet Old World in 1992. Williams also penned "Passionate Kisses," which became a huge hit for Mary Chapin Carpenter in 1993. The song brought Williams her first Grammy Award (for Best Country Song) that same year.

Blessed, the stunning new album is set for release on Feb 28 by Lost Highway. Considered by many to be one of America’s greatest living songwriters, Williams lives up to that and more by delivering 12 new songs that cover an even wider emotional spectrum than her previous work, without moving too far in any one direction. For Williams, her musical career has never been about earning gold records—it's been about her art. She has never been afraid to discard takes or even entire songs if they didn't feel right to her. It's her commitment to her own musical truth that seems to endear her critics and her devoted following. "Her songs come from the heart," music executive Bob Buziak told Billboard. "People feel it, embrace it and live vicariously through them, and that's the key."
