AN ACOUSTIC EVENING WITH JOHN HIATT – THE ECLIPSE SESSIONS TOUR


AN ACOUSTIC EVENING WITH JOHN HIATT – THE ECLIPSE SESSIONS TOUR
The Los Angeles Times has referred to John Hiatt as “one of rock’s most astute singer- songwriters of the past 40 years.” His 23rd studio album, the Eclipse Sessions is being released in October 2018. His most iconc recording, “Bring the Family” is now 31 years old, and still has many chestnuts that appear on today’s “personal playlists.”
Hiatt has provided many hit songs to the likes of Bonnie Raitt (“Thing Called Love”), Jeff Healey (“Angel Eyes”) and Roseanne Cash (“The Way We Make a Broken Heart”) in addition to having other songs being recorded by artists as diverse as Bob Dylan, Iggy Pop and Emmylou Harris. He also penned the composition “Riding With the King”, which was the title track to the Grammy Winning album by Eric Clapton and BB King.
In recent years he’s done series of shows with Lyle Lovett, “our little Smothers Brothers comedy show,” that’s brought out other spins on his art, though elements already familiar to those who’ve been there all along. Alternately bemused and profound, he’s a self-aware chronicler of both his own and others’ stumbles and epiphanies, the tales richer with each step forward.
