Lucinda Williams

Three-time Grammy Award winning country, rock and folk musician Lucinda Williams comes to Southwest Florida for a concert Feb. 4 at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall.  Williams’ experience writing and performing music spans more than 50 years and includes more than a dozen studio albums including 1998’s “Car Wheels on a Gravel Road,” which garnered her first Grammy award as a performer and 2017’s “This Sweet Old World,” which is a full-length reconsideration of her 1992 album, “Sweet Old World.”  Ahead of her performance in Fort Myers, Williams spoke with us about her upbringing, the influence of her father, renowned poet Miller Williams, her approach to songwriting and her upcoming memoir, set for release later this year.
