Four Chances to See the Legendary Lucinda Williams

August 3rd, 2012

Lucinda Williams is a legend. She’s been making blues, country, folk and rock music for nearly 35 years, but it took some time for Williams to get her due. It was 1998’s Car Wheels on a Gravel Road, the Louisiana native’s fifth LP, that put her on the map, taking Williams (above, playing “Fruits of My Labor” for AOL Sessions) beyond the cult following of musicians and critics and dropping her firmly into the mainstream. But she’s not one to rest on her laurels or look back too much—her 10th studio album, the well-received Blessed, came out last year. And as always, Williams remains an electric performer, which works out great because next week you’ll have four chances to see her perform: at The Bowery Ballroom on Monday and Tuesday and at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Thursday and Friday.
