Singer/Songwriter Ani DiFranco Coming to Lobero Theatre on Wednesday

Intimate show will also feature special guest Sean Hayes

Ani DiFranco, one of the area’s most adored singers, is returning to Santa Barbara for an intimate show Wednesday at the historic Lobero Theatre.

The prolific Grammy-winning singer and songwriter has been making beautiful music on her own terms for more than 20 years. She formed her own record company, Righteous Babe Records, at the start of her career in 1990.

DiFranco, a music workaholic, is touring in support of her new album, Which Side Are You On?,  which is no less than the 17th full studio album she has recorded. Her thoughtful lyrics harken back to the style of folk legends such as Arlo Guthrie and Joan Baez, in the 1960s, but with a strong 21st-century political diatribe.

DiFarnco tours with a trio of accomplished musicians, and the veteran performers have honed their skills with countless performances to their credit. Very special guest Sean Hayes has been added to the show.

A few tickets are still available, with prices starting at $39.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
