lucindawilliams.com she’s a little bit country, folk, rock and one gutsy lyrist. Personally I think she is a classic!

  1. Great list, I share your Lucinda admiration. Hoping to get tickets for here upcoming concert tour. Heard a song,"Buttercup", from her new CD this morning on Elizabeth Cook's Apron Strings. Nice.

  2. I will have to check it out. Thanks. Unfortunately her closest concert to me is Erie, PA. I wish she was coming closer to Philadelpia. She is a very talented lady!

  3. She is not coming anywhere near Philly? I find that very surprising.

    I saw once when she opened up for Tom Petty many years ago in Camden at the outdoor place, whatever it's called now. :)
