Jim Lauderdale just picked up a WagonMaster Lifetime Achievement Award, which was presented by George Strait, at the Americana Honors & Awards. It’s a much deserving honor given to a master songwriter — his work has been recorded by artists like Patty Loveless, Shelby Lynne, Solomon Burke, The Dixie Chicks and Strait. Lauderdale is a talented performer, as noted after this year’s Housing Fest that was held at The Fillmore. See him at Evening Muse with its intimate setting is a real treat. $20-$22
Saying Lauryn Hill will be late to the stage at her upcoming Charlotte show is akin to telling people the sun will rise in the morning. Expect it and don’t let it bother you. Once that’s out of the way, we know Ms. Hill is worth the wait. Her recent concerts and festival appearances have been sublime. Her songs have received modifications and modernizations and her talent shines through. $61.50-$101.50.
