Lucinda Williams Live, Laura Nyro In the Spotlight, Our Album of The Week, and LIVE DEAD, Saturday, May 8, 2021

Happy Saturday, Musicologists! It’s our usual rockin’ Saturday here in The Mermaid Lounge, and we’re loaded with great stuff today, starting with Lucinda Williams.

Lucinda Williams, who had a stroke last year, is ready to return to action and we are celebrating!

Here’s Saturday’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Lucinda Williams Live at Austin City Limits, The Moody Theatre, December 5, 1998

It recently came to light that Lucinda Williams suffered a stroke late last year. She is now ready to sing again, and we here in The Mermaid Lounge are happy about that. Today, we have her live at Austin City Limits.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Nothing But A Breeze by Jesse Winchester

Jesse Winchester remains one of the most underrated singer-songwriters of his generation, and today we have the final airing of his album, Nothing But A Breeze. Tomorrow when you roll out of bed, we’ll have a new Album of The Week.

6:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Laura Nyro

Laura Nyro is another of those singer-songwriters who sometimes flies under the radar. She has written songs that have put many people on the charts. But there’s nothing like hearing Laura Nyro sing her own compositions. You can do that here today.

10:00 p.m. LIVE DEAD! The Grateful Dead Live at The Albuquerque Civic Auditorium, Albuquerque, New Mexico, November 17, 1971 NEW!

We’re back to new live performances from The Grateful Dead this week. This time we have them live from Albuquerque, New Mexico.
