Event Info
Doors Open:1 Hour Before Show


Hailing from the tightly knit musical community of Austin, Texas, award-winning singer-songwriter Ruthie Foster has found herself duetting with Bonnie Raitt, standing on stage with the Allman Brothers at New York’s Beacon Theater, and trading verses with Susan Tedeschi. Her latest album, Joy Comes Back, described as “some folk, some blues, some soul, some rock, some gospel,” illustrates Ruthie’s genre-spanning talent. Ruthie has been nominated for three Grammys, and has won multiple Blues Music and Austin Music Awards, plus the Grand Prix du Disque from Académie Charles-Cros in France.

Opener: Dianne Davidson

Dianne Davidson is a born and bred Tennessee gal who’s released five albums and worked with people like Linda Ronstadt, Tammy Wynette, BB King, and Leon Russell. Her bluesy raise-the-rafters voice can also wrap itself around original ballads and Americana stories emotional enough to make you cry, and between songs patter so funny you’ll laugh out loud. She’s also great at choosing songs by others, all well-crafted songs, sung from the heart.
