News: Lucinda Williams Announces Tour Dates

2 min read

(AUS) It’s a warm welcome back to Australia to the wonderful Lucinda Williams, who today announces a series of intimate theatre shows this December, presented by Frontier Touring. This will be a unique opportunity to see the talented American songstress perform her own headline shows, while she’s in the country appearing as special guest for Paul Kelly’s Merri Soul Sessions a day on the green winery shows.

The three time Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter, acclaimed for her unique country-rock meets soul sound, will play Sydney’s Enmore Theatre on Wednesday 2 December and Melbourne’s Forum Theatre on Monday 7 December.

Williams will also join Paul Kelly’s Merri Soul Sessions, who’ll tour the country with Kasey Chambers and Marlon Williams, for a day on the green events in all states.

Hailing from Louisiana, Williams has been maneuvering down a path all her own for more than three decades now, amassing an adoring fan base along the way. “America’s best songwriter” (Time) has released 11 acclaimed studio albums, from 1988’s breakthrough Lucinda Williams to the landmark Car Wheel On A Gravel Road (1998) to last year’s double-album offering, Down Where the Spirit Meets The Bone.

Williams is in the most prolific period of her career; as always refusing to rest on her laurels and continuing to push her creative boundaries. Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone features 20 new songs, with 18 written solely by Williams. The album’s opening track ‘Compassion’ marks a personal milestone for Williams, as it’s the first time she has composed music for one of her father’s (poet Miller Williams) poems. The album, which closes with an epic and gorgeous rendition of JJ Cale’s ‘Magnolia’, won rave reviews here in Australia.

Don’t miss the bold and original Lucinda Williams on her very first Australian tour since 2012.
