Grammy Winner Rickie Lee Jones & Anders Osborne

Date: 2018-11-09 | For more show dates, click here.

With the vulnerable bravado of the beat generation and a love of '40s jazz, two-time Grammy Award winner Rickie Lee Jones was often called "the female Tom Waits." But over the course of her three-decade career, the prodigious talent has set herself apart as a singer-songwriter with style all her own. As an eclectic roots singer, Jones became known for such diverse songs as the jazz-inflected "Chuck E.'s in Love," the jive-talkin' commercial hit "Woody and Dutch ..." and her early '90s college radio jam, "Satellites." Joined by New Orleans-based musician Anders Osborne, this songstress will belt out new and old favorites at Jacobs Music Center's Copley Symphony Hall.
