Coming (really) soon: Lucinda Williams

Update: A second show has been added on Monday, Sept. 20. Ticket link here.

There are a lot of reasons that Fayetteville rules, but one of them is the fact that we occasionally get a last minute show from one of the best singer/songwriters on the planet when she comes to town to visit her father.

I’m talking about Lucinda Williams, who George’s announced today will be in town for a one-night-only performance two nights at the Majestic Lounge on Sunday, Sept. 19 and Monday, Sept. 20.

Her father, legendary poet Miller Williams, is a longtime Fayetteville resident, and rumor has it that Mr. Williams may read a poem or two at the show if he’s feeling up to it. Miller and Lucinda performed together in a series of shows called “Poetry Said, Poetry Sung,” including a performance at the Walton Arts Center in 2005.

Lucinda isn’t currently touring, which makes the show an especially nice surprise.

The shows are $20, and tickets are available at George’s ticketing website.
