The Colonial Theatre is thrilled to welcome two legendary singer-songwriters, Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt. This intimate acoustic performance features the two artists on stage together, trading off songs and stories that have made them two of the most innovative voices in music over the past three decades.
Singer, composer, and actor Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums. Coupled with a gift for storytelling, this Texas-based musician fuses elements of country, swing, jazz, folk, gospel, and blues in a convention-defying style that breaks down walls.
John Hiatt, who the Los Angeles Times calls “…one of rock’s most astute singer-songwriters of the last 40 years,” has always been a keen observer of life’s flings and foibles, and his insights and skill at sharing them have only sharpened over the years. Hiatt’s songs have been recorded by artists as diverse as Bob Dylan, Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Iggy Pop, Rosanne Cash, the Jeff Healey, and even the cartoon bear band of Disney’s film, The Country Bears.
