One of the all time stealth legends of American music — Jim Lauderdale — will perform at the Treehouse Café at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 5.
Tickets for this 21-and-older concert, $25 for a reserved seat, are on sale at www.treehousebainbridge.com.
With several Grammy and Americana Awards under his belt, Lauderdale’s penchant for imaginative roots music encompasses all that is today’s musical landscape. His combination of country, bluegrass, soul, R&B and rock, many say, has helped to pave the way for the current Americana movement.
For several decades he has written songs for, and worked with, some of the finest artists in traditional and modern music, including Ralph Stanley, Elvis Costello, George Strait, Buddy Miller, Lucinda Williams, John Oates, Solomon Burke, Lee Ann Womack, Old Crow Medicine Show, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Blake Shelton, the Dixie Chicks, Vince Gill, Patty Loveless and Gary Allan, among others.
As a solo artist, since 1986 until now, he’s created a body work spanning 29 albums of imaginative roots music, encompassing country, bluegrass, soul, R&B and rock.
A longtime ambassador of the Americana genre, Lauderdale received the WagonMaster Lifetime Achievement Award, presented by George Strait, at the 15th annual Americana Honors & Awards.
On this rare solo tour he’ll be unveiling his latest studio album, “Time Flies,” released recently.
