An Evening with Patty Griffin + Todd Snider
October 28 at 7:30 pm
Patty Griffin is among the most consequential singer-songwriters of her generation, a quintessentially American artist whose wide-ranging canon incisively explores the intimate moments and universal emotions that bind us together. Over the course of two decades, the 2x GRAMMY® Award winner – and 7x nominee – has crafted a remarkable body of work in progress that prompted the New York Times to hail her for “writing cameo-carved songs that create complete emotional portraits of specific people…her songs have independent lives that continue in your head when the music ends.”
At this point in his career, Todd Snider is undeniably one of the greatest songwriters of his generation, as attested by legends like John Prine, Loretta Lynn, Kris Kristofferson, Jerry Jeff Walker, Billy Joe Shaver and Guy Clark. But Snider is so much more than the lovable, lazy stoner yodeler he appears to be. Did you know his memoir is a best-seller, which makes him a best-selling author — let that sink in. He’s had an accomplished film career, as well. Did you know Snider’s song “Just Like Old Times” inspired the film Hard Luck Love Song which stars some people you’ve heard of? The film even includes an on-screen performance of the song by Snider during the closing credits. He also starred in the independent feature film East Nashville Tonight. First and foremost Snider remains one of America’s truly gifted storytellers. And if you’ve got tickets to see him live, boy, does he have a few songs and a few stories to share with you.
