Carrie Rodriguez

Says the Boston Globe: "Hailed by Lucinda Williams, recruited by Alejandro Escovedo, and nurtured by Lyle Lovett, singer-songwriter Carrie Rodriguez has rapidly emerged as one of the most compelling new voices on the roots-rock scene." Daughter of Texan singer-songwriter David Rodriguez and well-known Texas painter Katy Nail, the granddaughter of prolific Texas essayist Frances Nail, and the former roommate of contemporary bluegrasser Casey Driessen at the Berklee College of Music, this singer-songwriter (and fiddler extraordinaire) has taken steps forward with each new release. She comes to Michigan with a new release, "Give Me All You Got," which deals with a few dark themes–not surprising inasmuch as one of the first songwriters who inspired Rodriguez in her early teens was Leonard Cohen. “I listened to Leonard for a year and dwelled in the deep lowdown feelings he helped me feel,” Carrie recalls. The sound of the new album, however, is infectious (Carrie always is!). The Cactus Blossoms open the show–they're a classic country brother duet, consisting of brothers Page Burkum and Jack Torrey
