About this event

You can't fit Texas singer-songwriter Lyle Lovett into a single musical genre. Anchored in country music, he ventures into blues, folk, jazz, swing and gospel. The best description for him is simply this: authentic. His quirky voice wraps around the lyrics, teasing out unexpected meanings, whether he's singing his own compositions ("Cowboy Man," "She's No Lady," "My Baby Don't Tolerate") or reinterpreting the creations of others, most famously Tammy Wynette's "Stand by Your Man." This quietly charismatic performer always puts on a brilliant show. You'll get impeccable musicianship, delightfully unexpected song choices, and frequent flashes of humor, all in a gorgeous Victorian theater. Perfect.
