UCSB Arts & Lectures Presents an Acoustic Evening with Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt

UCSB Arts & Lectures presents an acoustic evening with Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt, two of America’s most admired singer-songwriters, in an intimate night of storytelling and music making at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 4, 2015, at UCSB Campbell Hall.

Lovett, one of the most infectious and fascinating musicians in popular music, and prodigious songwriter Hiatt come together on stage to showcase their deep talents and diverse influences.

Lovett’s live shows display the breadth of this Texas legend’s deep talents, and Hiatt lends his soulful, gritty voice to the duo. The masterful musicians deliver tales of redemption, relationships and surrender in their “witty and riveting” (Santa Barbara Independent) collaboration.

Grammy Award-winning Lovett fuses elements of country, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues, defying convention. Among his many accolades, he was given the Americana Music Association’s inaugural Trailblazer Award and was recently named the Texas State Musician.

A singer, composer and actor, the Texas-based musician’s career spans 14 albums and has broadened the definition of American music. Since his self-titled debut in 1986, Lovett has evolved into one of music’s most vibrant and iconic performers.

His oeuvre, rich and eclectic, is one of the most beloved of any living artist working today.

Hiatt’s blend of rock, country, folk and Mississippi Delta blues is heard in chart-topping songs covered by the likes of Bob Dylan, B.B. King, Bonnie Raitt and Iggy Pop.

He recently released his 22nd studio album, Terms of My Surrender, the title track from which was nominated for Song of the Year at this year’s Americana Music Awards. 

Hiatt has always been a keen chronicler of life, observing both stumbles and epiphanies. His insights and skillful delivery have only sharpened over the years, and his alternately bemused and profound perspective grows richer with each step forward.

An Acoustic Evening with Lyle Lovett & John Hiatt is presented by UCSB Arts & Lectures.

Few tickets remain. Tickets are $55–$125 for the general public and $25 for UCSB students with a valid student I.D.

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!
