LYLE LOVETT returns to Vermont to perform at the beautiful Shelburne Museum. Gates open at 7pm; show begins at 8pm.
Though initially labeled as a country singer, Lyle Lovett has more in common with ’70s singer/songwriters like Guy Clark, Jesse Winchester, Randy Newman, and Townes Van Zandt, combining a talent for incisive, witty lyrical detail with an eclectic array of music, ranging from country and folk to big-band swing and traditional pop.
“[Lovett's] pained, honeyed voice, with its bluesy turns and its countryish ache, fills every line with sincerity; his unhurried, deadpan delivery gives every line the air of an intimate confession.” - The New York Times
“Somewhere between Leonard Cohen and Bob Wills lies the Promised Land inhabited by Lyle Lovett, who balances elegantly broken romanticism with loose-jointed swing that shuffles and jumps like exalted Texas Playboys.” - Paste Magazine
