Lucinda Williams‘ latest endeavor, Lu’s Juke Box, is a six-episode series that will feature a themed set of songs, arranged by Williams herself. The in-studio performances are mostly full-band and will also feature a new song that fits each episode’s theme.
In the midst of the pandemic, the series of songs and stories will benefit struggling independent music venues. A percentage of each ticket will go directly to the venue. These venues had encouraged and helped her throughout her career and wanted to return the favor. “My hope for this project is that we’ll be able to help as many venues as we can,” Williams says. “They’re our homes, as artists. We have to take care of them, for the sake of live music to come.”
