Lucinda Williams .. my 4th time!The BLESSED lady was back in Charleston.
Miss Williams had her contacts in this time.
No eyeglasses were offered from the audience to help her see the lyrics.
That happened at the Performing Arts Center in 2008.
She played the Charleston Music Hall Sunday night and remarked that she really thought it was a great venue. "I like the twinkling lights behind me. They look like stars."
I agree it's a beautiful room and under-used for visiting acts.
More intimate than the Music Farm where I saw her a few years ago.
Her touring bus was parked right at the curb out front.
How convenient can you get?
"BLESSED" is the name of the new album by the 3-time Grammy winning singer-songwriter.
She was backed by long time bassist David Sutton and drummer Butch Norton.
Lead guitar was Blake Mills.
They formed a tight musical group.
Her nearly 2 hour show (short intermission) was a sweet mixture of Blues, Country and folk rock.
There were some very tender moments when she put aside her guitar and sang from the heart.
I also enjoyed Lucinda in Memphis in 2002 at the Beale Street Music Festival.
I look forward to the next time.
(Be sure to click on the photos for more details.Security didn't bother her camera and phone-toting fans and the lighting/sound was excellent.) Support live music!
