Lucinda Williams is heading back to the UK in 2019 to perform special anniversary shows to celebrate 20 years since the release of her award-winning fifth studio album, ‘Car Wheels On A Gravel Road’ which will include a show at London’s Barbican on Saturday 27th July. Lucinda will also headline the legendary Cambridge Folk Festival on Saturday 3rd August.
‘Car Wheels On A Gravel Road’ was written and co-produced by Williams herself and originally released by Mercury Records on June 30th, 1998. Selling 832,000 copies as well as winning the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album, the release is Lucinda’s best-selling album ever. ‘Car Wheels On A Gravel Road’ is an album that pays homage to the sounds of South America: from blues to rock, from soul to alternative country, it’s an album that defies categorisation. To celebrate 20 years since its release, Lucinda will play the album in its entirety at four special UK shows, alongside a selection of classic hits.
