UPDATED THURSDAY 7/26 at 7:00pm - WE STILL HAVE STANDING ROOM TICKETS (folding chairs in the back of the floor) AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR! AMY COOK WILL OPEN THIS SHOW! Stuart's Opera House is excited to announce Grammy-winner Lucinda Williams & her band Buick 6 are coming to Nelsonville! Lucinda will be making her third trip to Stuart's, but the first ever with a full band. THIS SHOW WILL SELL OUT, so get your tickets right away. Over the course of a recording career that's now in its fourth decade, the Louisiana-born singer has navigated terrain as varied as the dust-bowl starkness of her 1978 debut Ramblin’ (recorded on the fly with a mere 250 dollar budget behind her) to her acclaimed albums of the past decade.. Between those signposts, Lucinda Williams established a reputation as one of rock's most uncompromising and consistently fascinating writers and performers, earning kudos from artists as diverse as Mary-Chapin Carpenter (who helped win Williams a Grammy with her recording of “Passionate Kisses”) and Elvis Costello.
TICKETS ON SALE NOW!

It’s not easy to fuse a connection between the heartstrings and the hipbone, to bridge the emotional intensity of a singer-songwriter and the effortless swagger of a born rocker. But that’s exactly what California-bred, Austin-based Amy Cook has been doing for more than a decade – winning over fans with tunes that not only connect, but also attach themselves to the very heart of pleasure.
On Summer Skin (Roothouse Records/Thirty Tigers), her latest album, Cook explores both sides of that personality, with the assistance of a remarkable group of musicians: Bassist Me’Shell N’Degeocello, guitarists David Garza and Chris Bruce, and Jonathan Wilson on drums, as well as guests Ben Kweller, Patty Griffin and Robert Plant (who adds instantly recognizable harmonies to the gently atmospheric “It’s Gonna Rain”).
