Award-winning Americana artist Lucinda Williams returns to the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall. With the expansive, enveloping
“The Ghosts of Highway 20”, Lucinda brings to life those untold stories emanating from countless blue highways across the land and gives listeners a remarkably vivid look at how the highway has been a literal and figurative backdrop throughout her entire life. The intensely involving 14-song collection may be the most deeply felt, deeply affecting work of Lucinda Williams’ illustrious 35-plus-year career, a career that has been established on a foundation of remarkably personal songs.
For much of the ‘90s, Lucinda moved around the country, turning out work that won immense respect inside the industry – as borne out by the GRAMMY afforded Mary Chapin Carpenter’s interpretation of Williams’ “Passionate Kisses”. While her recorded output was sparse for a time, the work that did was invariably hailed for its indelible impressionism – like 1998’s “Car Wheels on a Gravel Road”, which notched her a second GRAMMY Award. Over the next decade, she crafted such classic sets as “West” (2007), and “Blessed'(2011), which the Los Angeles Times dubbed “a dynamic, human, album, one that’s easy to fall in love with”.
Lucinda credits the injection of vitality and passion that emerged in part to Tom Overby, her partner in both life and music, who’s Acted as both a sounding board and collaborator, contributing production ideas and offering encouragement to forge forward in directions that she might not have otherwise explored.
