An Acoustic Evening with John Hiatt with Special Guest Colin Elmore
One of the finest singer/songwriters of his generation, John Hiatt was celebrated by critics and discriminating music fans long before a larger audience discovered his work as a recording artist. From Indianapolis, Indiana, John Hiatt started his music career with garage bands and playing at bars in the late 60s. After moving to Nashville, Hiatt landed a job as a songwriter where he worked for several years before moving to Los Angeles and began opening for Folk musicians including Leo Kottke.
Many of Hiatt’s songs have been covered successfully by everyone from Bonnie Raitt, Ronnie Milsap, and Dr. Feelgood to Iggy Pop, Three Dog Night, and The Neville Brothers. Hiatt had his breakthrough as an artist in 1987, with the release of “Bring The Family.” Since then, he has released over 21 studio albums, been nominated for nine Grammy® awards, and has won various other awards. Hiatt’s newest album “The Eclipse Sessions” is musically rooted in acoustic Blues accentuated by Hiatt’s soulful and gritty voice, which mirrors the gravity of his reflective lyrics.Opening Act: Colin Elmore
