Brandy Clark Closes 2016 Acoustic Tour on a High Note

Brandy Clark Closes 2016 Acoustic Tour on a High Note 
Critically Acclaimed Singer/Songwriter Tapped as Special Guest for A Tribute to the Music of Linda Ronstadt
NASHVILLE,
Tenn. – CMA Award winner and four-time GRAMMY nominee, Brandy Clark,
just wrapped a highly successful acoustic tour that Los Angeles Times
said, “delivered a stream of smartly crafted songs,” that will make
radio “hard-pressed to find songs more emotionally and musically
rewarding than Clark’s,” with a bang Sunday in Northampton, Mass. Clark
has now been tapped as a special guest for an esteemed event this
December honoring revolutionary music icon and 11-time GRAMMY Award
winner, Linda Ronstadt.
With an acoustic performance that made CMT
write, “few artists can make you feel the power of music quite
like Brandy Clark,” the acclaimed songwriter sold out an entire run in
the United Kingdom as well as multiple stops in Los Angeles,
Philadelphia and New York City. The event presented by The Bluegrass
Situation, Goldenvoice and Red Light Management is titled, A Tribute to the Music of Linda Ronstadt,
and will use powerful voices of respected singer/songwriters to honor
the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer in Los Angeles Dec. 11 at The Theatre at
Ace Hotel.
Clark, who Washington Post
said is “armed onstage with her own powerful voice and an acoustic
guitar,” will be in great company as the tribute will feature
performances by Ronstadt’s close friends including: Jackson Browne,
Maria Muldaur and David Lindley as well as those to which she was an
influencer: Dawes, Gaby Moreno, Grace Potter and I’m With Her (Sara
Watkins, Aoife O’Donovan, Sarah Jarosz) led by the Watkins Family Hour
house band.

“Linda
Ronstadt is one of my favorite artists and biggest musical influences,”
says Clark. “I admire how beloved she is within all music circles, from
pop to rock to country and beyond. I am honored to be part of this
great event and to help raise money for such an important cause.”

All proceeds will benefit The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, a disease that affects Ronstadt.
