FREDERICK, Md., Wednesday April 11, 2018 — Coming soon to the Weinberg Center for the Arts and presented by Upfront Inc.: John Hiatt and The Goners featuring Sonny Landreth. The band will play the Weinberg Center for the Arts, 20 West Patrick Street, Frederick, MD on Wednesday, Aug 22 at 7:30pm.
Hiatt’s lyrics are timeless, his voice iconic, and his music legendary. This all-American rocker, respected by all and matched by none, is celebrating the 30th Anniversary of his critically-acclaimed “Slow Turning” album. He will be preforming the album in its entirety along with some of his greatest hits. Backed by his rocking band and joined by blues guitar god, Sonny Landreth, this is going to be one show you won’t want to miss.
Tickets will be on sale to members on Tuesday, April 17 at 10am and will be available to the public on April 24. Tickets begin at $35 and may be purchased online at WeinbergCenter.org, by calling the Box Office at 301.600.2828, or in person at 20 West Patrick St. Discounts are available for students, children, military, and seniors.
Over thirty-five years after the release of his debut album, John Hiatt remains one of America’s most respected and influential singer-songwriters. As the Los Angeles Times once wrote, “(Hiatt) writes the funniest sad songs – and the saddest funny songs – of just about anybody alive.”
John Hiatt’s songs have been covered by artists as diverse as Bob Dylan, Bonnie Raitt (“Thing Called Love”), Buddy Guy, Emmylou Harris, Ronnie Milsap, Iggy Pop, the Neville Brothers, Rosanne Cash (the #1 country hit, “The Way We Make A Broken Heart”), the Jeff Healey Band (“Angel Eyes”), Willie Nelson, Steve Earle, Linda Ronstadt, and even the cartoon bear band of Disney’s 2002 film, The Country Bears. He earned a Grammy nomination for his album Crossing Muddy Waters, and B.B. King and Eric Clapton shared a Grammy for their album Riding With The King, the title track from which was a Hiatt composition. In 2007, John Hiatt was honored with his own star on Nashville’s Walk of Fame and his legacy was even further cemented with a pair of accolades in the fall of 2008: the Americana Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting in September, and his October induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.
With seven solo albums already under his belt, Hiatt’s A&M debut, Bring The Family (1987), was his breakthrough. His rootsy, rock-country-blues fusion – performed with guitarist Ry Cooder, bassist Nick Lowe, and drummer Jim Keltner – was Hiatt’s first charted effort, and he was subsequently named Best Male Vocalist in Rolling Stone’s annual Critics Poll. Bonnie Raitt would later cover the album’s “Thing Called Love” on her multiplatinum smash, Nick of Time, and fan favorites “Memphis in The Meantime” and “Have A Little Faith in Me” which has been covered by artists from Joe Cocker and Delbert McClinton to Jewel.
