Just days before her 70th birthday, triple Grammy-winner and revered Americana pioneer Lucinda Williams returns to Glasgow as the recent – and first female - recipient of the ultra-prestigious BMI Troubadour Award. This follows rave reviews for her latest release, 2020’s searingly raw, righteously impassioned Good Souls, Better Angels. Reuniting Williams with Ray Kennedy, who also produced her 1998 classic Car Wheels on a Gravel Road, the album’s fire-and-brimstone blues-rock attack rails thrillingly against the wrongs of today’s troubled times. Tempered by parallel themes of resilience and hope, it’s been ranked among the best of her long and celebrated career.
