Lucinda Williams To Play Free Gig This Weekend
Louisiana-born singer/songwriter Williams started out singing blues music. Her 14 Grammy nominations have sprawled across the folk, country, rock, pop and Americana categories. Vanity Fair has described her work as "part Hank Williams, part Bob Dylan, part Keith Richards circa Exile on Main Street," but even being named with that rarified company hardly describes Williams, who will take the Great Park stage at 8:15 p.m.
"We invite everyone to come out for our second weekend of Flights & Sounds performances featuring Lucinda Williams, a true American original," said Beth Krom, Chair, Orange County Great Park Corporation. "The Great Park is proud to showcase high quality entertainment offered free to the public as part of our commitment to create wonderful experiences as we activate the Park."
Make it a weekend at the Great Park by dancing to the sounds of Jamaican dub and gypsy jazz with a salsa flavor with Nuriya, who will bring sizzling vocals to rumba flamenco, Afro-Cuban rhythms and Arabic melodies on Friday, August 12 at 8:15 p.m.
Flights & Sounds Summer Festival takes place near the brand-new Palm Court Arts Complex and expansive North Lawn and Great Park Balloon. Visitors will also be able to enjoy the Park's inaugural exhibition in the new Great Park Gallery, Plane Air Power by Laguna Beach artist Jorg Dubin.
