An Acoustic Evening with Lyle Lovett & John Hiatt
Friday, February 22, 2019 at 8PM at Tarrytown Music Hall
A Music Hall/Music Without Borders Co-presentation, supported by WFUV
The celebrated singer/songwriters return to the Music Hall! The concert will feature both artists performing side by side, alternating songs from their respective careers. Utilizing their dynamic chemistry to swap stories and songs, fans can expect a rare “unplugged” evening of entertainment. Lyle Lovett, singer, songwriter, actor and four-time Grammy Award-winner, has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums over three decades. Coupled with his unique gift for storytelling, the Texas-based musician fuses elements of Americana, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-defying manner. John Hiatt, a master lyricist and satirical storyteller, weaves hidden plot twists into fictional tales ranging in topics including redemption, relationships, growing older and surrendering, on his terms. Hiatt's songs have been recorded by artists as diverse as Bob Dylan, Bonnie Raitt ("Thing Called Love"), Emmylou Harris, Iggy Pop, Rosanne Cash (#1 country hit, "The Way We Make A Broken Heart"), the Jeff Healey Band ("Angel Eyes") and even the cartoon bear band of Disney's film, The Country Bears.
