Bonnie Raitt to give Maui show
Grammy-winning singer Bonnie Raitt will bring her “mix of soul, blues, folk and rock” to the Maui Arts & Cultural Center on March 15.
From the release of her first album, “Bonnie Raitt,” in 1971 to her current 19th album “Slipstream,”
which sold more than a quarter million copies in 2012, Raitt has become an institution in American music. The respected guitarist, singer and songwriter has won nine Grammys and was named one of the “100 Greatest Singers of All Time” by Rolling Stone magazine, her website said. She was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame in 2000.
Born to a musical family, she is the daughter of Broadway singer John Raitt of “Carousel,” “Oklahoma!” and “The Pajama Game” fame and accomplished pianist/singer Marge Goddard.
These days, she spends the better part of each year on tour, entertaining audiences “with her mix of soul, blues, folk and rock,” a news release about the performance said.
Raitt will perform in the Yokouchi Pavilion/A&B Amphitheater with John Cruz opening for her. The concert is a Tom Moffatt Production.
Showtime is 7 p.m.; gates open at 5 p.m.
Tickets go on sale for MACC members Saturday. The general public may begin purchasing tickets Feb. 8.
Ticket prices are $45, $55, $85 and $125, with applicable fees.
Raitt will perform at the Waikiki Shell the next night.
