  • Lucinda Williams.



Singer-songwriter Lucinda Williams performs at Mayo Performing Arts Center Friday, June 20 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $39 TO $69. WFUV is the media partner for this concert.

Over the course of a recording career that's now in its fourth decade, the Louisiana-born singer has navigated terrain as varied as the dust-bowl starkness of her 1978 debut "Ramblin'" and the stately elegance of West.

She's never settled for any sort of pigeonholing, entering the '90s with the slow-burning "Sweet Old World" and cementing her own spot in the cultural lexicon with 1998's "Car Wheels on a Gravel Road."

The latter disc earned Williams her first Grammy as a performer, but rather than try to capture the same lightning in a bottle a second time, she stretched her boundaries on 2001's "Essence," an album rife with both cerebral interludes and soul-stirring stomps.

The Mayo Performing Arts Center is located at 100 South St. in Morristown. For more information or tickets contact the box office at 973-539-8008 or www.mayoarts.org.
