Lucinda Williams to play Virginia Theatre on February 15th

On February 15th, 2022, the legendary singer-songwriter Lucinda Williams will grace the stage of the Virginia Theatre. 

Known for her gritty voice and powerful storytelling, Williams seemlessly blends folk, blues, rock, and country to create a soulful, unique sound. She put out her first album in 1978 and has been making music ever since. Her 1999 album Car Wheels on a Gravel Road won her the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album. 

On April 24th, 2020, Williams released Good Souls Better Angels, her 14th studio album. She suffered a stroke in November of the same year, recovered, and soon went on tour with Jason Isbell in 2021. 

Tickets for the February performance start at $29.50 and go on sale Friday, December 10th, at 10 a.m. on the Virginia Theatre’s website, over the phone, or in person at the Virgina Theatre’s box office. 

Williams previously played the ELLNORA Guitar Festival back in 2013. You can check out our coverage of the fest here
