Jerry Douglas Band With Special Guest Maura O’Connell Coming to the Lobero

Lobero LIVE will welcome Jerry Douglas back to the Lobero for a very special evening with Maura O’Connell Monday, Oct. 3, at 8 p.m. 

Dobro master and 14-time Grammy winner Jerry Douglas is to the resonator guitar what Jimi Hendrix was to the electric guitar: elevating, transforming and reinventing the instrument in countless ways.

Maura O’Connell has made a name for herself on two continents as a superb singer. O’Connell’s restless muse could not be safely contained under the banner of Celtic music, and she soon discovered both an interest in and affinity for progressive American roots music.

“If Clapton is God, Jerry Douglas is the Holy Ghost. There are things this man can do with a dobro, or even a slide on electric guitar, that a lot of guitarists can’t do with 10 fingers,” writes the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Tickets for Jerry Douglas Band with special guest Maura O’Connell may be purchased online at Lobero.com or by calling the Lobero Box Office at 805.963.0761.

VIP tickets cost $105; Section A tickets $59 and Section B $49. VIP tickets include premier seating, entry to a pre-performance reception with hosted bar and appetizers and listing in the evening’s program. All prices include a facility fee.  

Complete calendar listings can be found at Lobero.com.

About Jerry Douglas

Called “dobro’s matchless contemporary master” by The New York Times, Douglas is one of the most innovative recording artists in music, both as a solo artist and member of groundbreaking bands including J.D. Crowe & the New South, the Country Gentlemen, Boone Creek and Strength In Numbers.

Douglas’ distinctive sound graces more than 1500 albums, including discs released by Garth Brooks, Paul Simon, James Taylor, Elvis Costello, Earl Scruggs and Ray Charles, among many others.

Since 1998, Douglas has been a key member of Alison Krauss and Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas, touring extensively and co-producing and playing on a series of platinum albums.

He has produced albums for Krauss, the Del McCoury Band, Maura O’Connell and Jesse Winchester and is co-music director of the acclaimed BBC TV series Transatlantic Sessions.

His latest solo album, Traveler, features guest appearances by such notable friends as Paul Simon, Mumford & Sons and Eric Clapton.

As he continues his incalculable influence on Americana, bluegrass and their many related genres, Douglas forges on as a true pioneer in American music.

Angie Bertucci represents the Lobero Theatre.

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!
