11:06 Classic Concert: Lucinda Williams - Live at the Fillmore
This week’s Classic Concert was recorded over a three night stand at San Francisco Fillmore West in 2004. It features Williams with her road hardened touring group of guitarist, pedal steel and background vocalist Doug Pettibone, Taras Prodaniuk on bass and Jim Christie on drums.
With this band, she has just recorded the album "World Without Tears" which demonstrated a new confidence in her singing.
As her 2008 concerts in New Zealand showed, William’s Americana style of country, blues and rock is raw and passionate.
