Lyle Lovett To Perform At Tivoli Theater May 14

Friday, March 29, 2013

Lyle Lovett and his acoustic group will perform at the Tivoli Theater on May 14 at 8 p.m.

Singer, composer and actor, Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums. Coupled with his gift for storytelling, the Texas-based musician fuses elements of country, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-defying manner that breaks down barriers.

Lovett has appeared in 13 feature films, and on stage and television. Among his many accolades, besides the four Grammy Awards, he was given the Americana Music Association's inaugural Trailblazer Award, and was recently named the Texas State Musician.

All seats are reserved at $43 and $57 plus convenience fees.
