FTC Presents Lyle Lovett & John Hiatt
Fairfield Theatre Company presents Lyle Lovett, whose nimble and incisive songs have made him one of the most unique voices in American music. Though a country singer at first glance, Lovett’s body of work stretches well into pop territory, as well as big band swing, and contemporary songwriting. Lovett has been a cult figure from the beginning, but since his beginning in the 1980′s, he’s become increasingly indelible not only as a songwriter but as an actor as well. In addition to his thirteen albums, Lyle Lovett also has substantial film repertoire including “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas”, “Walk Hard”, and “The New Guy”.
Singer Songwriter John Hiatt’s mercurial tastes have led to a varied and impressive musical career. From Country and Blues to New Wave, John Hiatt has left a mark substantial enough to garner the praise of fans and peers alike. Hiatt’s songs have been covered by acts like Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, and B.B. King, and written songs for stars from Conway Twitty to Three Dog Night.
