Patty Griffin is a Grammy-Award winning artist who is acclaimed for her songwriting as well as her powerful voice. Her first two albums, Living With Ghosts and Flaming Red, are considered seminal albums in the singer-songwriter genre, while Children Running Through was nominated for a Grammy and won Best Album at the 2007 Americana Music Awards. Griffin was named Best Artist that same evening. She won a Grammy for Downtown Church, her 2010 gospel album. Her songs have been covered by a myriad of artists, including Emmylou Harris, The Dixie Chicks, Joan Baez, and Bette Midler.
Very much in the traditions of the American transcendental writer Ralph Waldo Emerson and the mystical poets Rumi and Rainer Maria Rilke, Patty Griffin grounds her themes of love and mystery in the experience and rhythms of the everyday, the stuff of life. Griffin’s characteristic expressive vocals – equal measures passion and poignancy – and her potent songwriting blur the lines between the personal, the spiritual, and the political. These songs move and persuade while they dive deep.
Griffin will perform with multi-instrumentalist David Pulkingham. Indie-soul recording artist AHI will open this show. Doors will open at 7:30pm for this reserved seating event.
