Round Up by arrangement with Live Nation is thrilled to announce one of America’s finest singer-songwriters, Lucinda Williams will head to New Zealand for one show only, playing on Friday 4 December in theatre mode at Vector Arena.

It’s been three years since the immensely talented Lucinda Williams graced our shores and we’re honoured to welcome the three-time Grammy Award winner back to New Zealand for a one-off intimate performance.

Renowned for marrying rock, blues, country and soul, Lucinda heads our way with stellar band in tow; including Wallflowers guitarist Stuart Mathis and her irreplaceable rhythm section David Sutton on bass and Butch Norton on drums.

With a recording career spanning 12 albums and nearing four decades, Lucinda Williams is touring on the back of her brilliant 2014 double-album release Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone, which was voted 'Album of the Year' at the 14th Annual Americana Awards last month.

The album includes 20 new songs with all but two of the tracks written solely by 62-year-old Williams. From the very personal "Compassion" penned by her poet father, Miller Williams and sung into being by Lucinda, to the closing, beautifully epic rendition of JJ Cale’s "Magnolia"; Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone is testament to Lucinda’s prowess.

Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone joins a distinguished discography including 1978 debut Ramblin’ on My Mind, 1988’s eponymous breakthrough, Lucinda Williams and 1998’s landmark Car Wheels On A Gravel Road.

The Warratahs have been handpicked to support a member of American roots royalty, Lucinda Williams. Barry Saunders & Lucinda Williams are both consummate writers and performers in their own right, touring from town to town, place to place, makin’ music for the heart and soul of it. This not to be missed one-off performance will see a true river crossing between two singular acts, whose music continues to resonate, inspire & breathe with renewed vigor.
