The Point presents Lyle Lovett and his Large Band
Wednesday, Aug 3 at 7:30pm
Flynn Theater - Burlington, VT
Four-time Grammy-winner and unrivaled country music innovator Lyle Lovett returns to the Flynn following his sold-out 2015 performance with John Hiatt, this time bringing along his Large Band. The name isn’t hyperbole: the 14-piece band features Viktor Krauss (Alison’s brother) and legendary session drummer Russ Kunkel, who’s played with Jackson Browne, James Taylor, Carole King, and scores of others. Lovett’s genuine grace in crafting compelling, passionate songs has propelled a decades-spanning career that’s included forays into film and television, including appearances in a number Robert Altman’s career-defining run of movies in the ‘90s. As exemplified on his most recent album, Release Me, Lovett’s music continues to portray the desperate sense of off-the-rails romanticism with unwavering clarity, passion, and grit.
