TEXAS TROUBADOURS, RUTHIE FOSTER, JIMMIE DALE GILMORE and CARRIE
RODRIGUEZ - WED NOV 8 at 8PM
The Texas Troubadours project brings Ruthie Foster, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, and Carrie Rodriguez three of the Lone Star State's finest together onstage for the first time to swap songs and collaborate. GRAMMY nominated vocal powerhouse Ruthie Foster has been described by Rolling Stone as "pure magic to watch and hear". Drawing influence from leading acts like Mavis Staples and Aretha Franklin, Foster's joyful sound blends blues, folk, soul, rock, and gospel. Country musician Jimmie Dale Gilmore is a native of the Texas Panhandle and a founder of legendary band The Flatlanders. This is a rare appearance for the brilliant and well-loved story teller The Seattle Times calls "a remarkable interpreter". Carrie Rodriguez, daughter of Texas singer-songwriter David Rodriguez, released her critically acclaimed album Lola in 2016. Named one of NPR's top 30 of the year, the album is inspired by the Chicana singing sensation (and Carrie's great aunt) Eva Garza.
