Lucinda Williams - FUV Live at Rockwood Music Hall - 2014

Lucinda Williams is in an inspired place in her writing and performing. In fact, the recording sessions around her new double album, Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone, actually created enough material for a third album coming next year! Lucinda brought along guitarist Stuart Mathis for this FUV Live set at Rockwood Music Hall, and the room was packed with FUV Marquee Members, psyched to see one of the greats in such a cool, rock club setting.

As usual, Doughty brought his wit and good-natured outlook to the conversation, and in this acoustic setting, his masterful wordplay was right up front for us to enjoy.

Pitch them below and we'll spin a set after 9am.
