WFUV is thrilled to announce that Lucinda Williams will headline our annual fundraising concert, Holiday Cheer for WFUV, on Wednesday, December 5th at the Beacon Theatre.
Lucinda Williams has long been an FUV fave and standard-bearer for great songwriting of any form. We've followed every step of her career on the radio, from her 1979 blues-based debut through her most recent release, Blessed. She's got an unrivalled gift for storytelling with guts, and we know firsthand that she's a dynamic and moving performer. She'll be backed by her full band, known as Buick 6.
Come out to support WFUV and for a great night of music. More performers are being added, so stay tuned to 90.7FM, Facebook and Twitter for the juicy details.
We're donating a portion of the proceeds to the American Red Cross to support local Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
Tickets are priced from $40-$120 (plus $5 facility fee) and are on sale now through Ticketmaster.
And for good measure, see below for what we could all use a little more of: "Joy."
