Posted on February 08, 2016, BY Staff
Grammy award winner Patty Griffin will join forces with Sara Watkins and Anaïs Mitchell in a celebration of American songwriting and performance on Thursday, March 3, at 7:30 p.m. at the Weis Center for the Performing Arts.
Tickets for the performance are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors 62+, $15 for youth 18 and under, $15 for Bucknell employees and retirees (limit 2), $10 for Bucknell students (limit 2) and $15 for non-Bucknell college students (limit 2). Tickets can be purchased online at the Campus Box Office or by calling 570-577-1000.
Tickets are also available in person from several locations including the Weis Center lobby (weekdays 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) and the CAP Center Box Office, located on the ground floor of the Elaine Langone Center (weekdays 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.). The performance is sponsored, in part, by WXPN, and is part of the highly-anticipated "Use Your Voice" National Tour for this trio.
More than just a three-act show, this special "singers-in-the-round" style show features all three artists on stage together, sharing songs and accompanying each other for the entire evening.
With a career spanning over two decades, Griffin is the recipient of a Grammy for "Best Traditional Gospel Album," and is also an accomplished songwriter, having written songs for artists such as the Dixie Chicks and Bette Midler, as well as most of the material on her own catalogue of recordings. Watkins, first praised for her work as a founding member of Grammy-winning Nickel Creek, has since established an extraordinary solo career, including highly-acclaimed studio albums and collaborations with artists such as John Mayer and The Decemberists. Mitchell has been compared to Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen and Gillian Welch for her musical style, sound and performance and is widely recognized as a unique and impressive young voice in the resurging American folk movement.
