Lucinda Williams has grown from a pioneer of 1970s alternative country to a beloved legend of coarse Americana sound. The multi-Grammy winner is undeniably one of the biggest names in country and roots music – in 2002, Time magazine named Williams “America’s best songwriter”.
The core of Williams’ production is comprised of sad, often personal songs from America’s heartlands. Something about those melancholy country songs strikes a chord with the Finnish mind. Williams’ sincere voice that goes straight to your heart seems to speak directly to us.
In 2013, Williams silenced the audience at Finlandia Hall with her heart-rending performance. Friends of roots music still consider it to be one of the most touching gigs ever. Now, audiences at Huvila have a new opportunity to experience what is sure to be a memorable performance by this legend.
The evening is opened by Darling West, a sympathetic trio from Norway, whose music wonderfully combines Nashville’s Americana sounds and Norway’s rainy fjord landscapes.
Darling West starts at 7 pm. Lucinda Williams starts at 8.45 pm.
Doors: 5.30 pm.
For this event you can purchase a snack by Restaurant Juuri beforehand!
