Williams’s wide vibrato and world weary voice could make you think of Willie Nelson, but you didn’t really need any comparison. With “Protection” at the top of the set, she earned our trust, with “Can’t Let Go,” we settled back in our seats, confident we were in the right place. When she began singing you were in New York. When she finished the seemingly textbook 12 bar blues, “West Memphis,” we were practically wiping the West Memphis dust out of our eyes. [Elmore Magazine]

Lucinda Williams brought her tour to NYC for a 5-night run at City Winery from March 13-18. We have pictures of the first show on the 13th.

Lucinda's backing band Buick 6 played an opening set before Lucinda played for nearly 2 hours. The shows were in support of her fantastic, depressing new album The Ghosts of Highway 20, and she played plenty off that. Check out more pictures, including one of the setlist, below.
