Music Monday with Lucinda Williams (@happywoman9)

Last week, I saw Lucinda Williams at Massey Hall, my first time seeing her in person. She is currently touring to promote her new double album, Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone, but the Louisianan native performed old favorites as well.

Backed by an amazing band which consisted of Wallflowers guitarist Stuart Mathis, bass player David Sutton and percussionist/drummer Butch Norton, the four-person ensemble played a brilliant mix of alt-country, folk-blues and hot rock. The show concluded after three enthusiastic encores and fist-pumping to Neil Young’s “Rockin’ the Free World.”

I’ve included a video of Lucinda from an older concert, performing a song by Randy Weeks. It was the second song she played the night I saw her. If you get a chance, don’t miss her live. She’s a fabulous singer/songwriter, and her voice is as powerful as ever. And her band — HOT! Find tour dates on her website.

I’d also like to extend a special “hello” to Suzanne, a lovely woman who sat next to me and was a real Lucinda fan. She made for an especially well-informed musical evening.

Enjoy “Can’t Let Go” and have a super week,

    Thanks for the morning eye-opener. You are one of the few people I know who can discuss a group’s make up and that adds to my respect all the more. Best to you, Kiddo, and well wishes for the continuing success of your novel.
