Renowned singer-songwriters Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt will take UPAC’s stage together on Sunday, May 3. Armed with acoustic guitars, a plethora of stories and a deep arsenal of songs, the long-time friends are slated to put on an intimate performance at the historic Kingston theater.
Lovett, the owner of four Grammy awards, is predominantly considered a country musician whose music includes folk, jazz, and blues influences. He has starred in films and TV series as well as released more than a dozen albums. His partner for the UPAC performance, John Hiatt, has an impressive career of his own, spanning back to the mid ’70s. Hiatt tunes have been covered by the likes of Bob Dylan, Emmylou Harris, Willie Nelson, B.B. King and Eric Clapton among many, many others. While his award case is a bit barer than Lovett’s, Hiatt’s songs have been performed by an astounding number of legendary musicians and he has experienced decades of success in the industry. Together, the two will collaborate to put on a captivating show.
