Patty Griffin Summer 2018 Tour
August 4 @ 7:30 pm
Patty Griffin is a Grammy-Award winning artist who has achieved great acclaim for her songwriting as well as her powerful voice. Her first two albums, “Living With Ghosts” and “Flaming Red” are considered seminal albums in the singer-songwriter genre, while “Children Running Though” won Best Album and led to her being named Best Artist at the 2007 Americana Music Awards. She won the Grammy for “Downtown Church,” her 2010 gospel album. Her songs have been covered by a myriad of artists including Emmylou Harris, The Dixie Chicks, Joan Baez and Bette Midler. Griffin’s characteristic expressive vocals – equal measures passion and poignancy – and her potent songwriting blur the lines between the personal, the spiritual and the political. These songs move and persuade while they dive deep. This marks the first appearance at the Opera House for this Maine native, please join us as we welcome her home tonight.
