Nanci Takes The 2010 “The Loving Kind” Tour To Australia!

Nanci Takes The 2010 “The Loving Kind” Tour To Australia: Grammy Award winner Nanci Griffith from Austin Texas, comes to Australia for the first time in March 2010.

Nanci Griffith got an early start on her path to performing and songwriting. At the age of 6 she began to write songs, thinking of it as “part of the process of learning how to play guitar.” While she doesn’t remember many of her earliest songs, she does recall that “the first original song my mother commented on…was a song about Timothy Leary.” Then at the age of 14, when a campfire turn at the Kerrville Folk Festival caught the ear of singer-songwriter Tom Russell, she was on her way.

She has recorded 18 albums and in recent years she has toured with many artists including Buddy Holly’s band, The Crickets, John Prine, Iris DeMent, Suzy Bogguss and Judy Collins. Griffith has recorded duets with other great artists, among them Emmylou Harris, Mary Black, Don McLean, Jimmy Buffett, Willie Nelson, Adam Duritz (singer of Counting Crows) and The Chieftains. Nanci has been described as one of the most important voices to come from America. Never afraid to tackle difficult topics head on in her songs, her performance is always full of passion and deep honesty. “Griffith is a songwriter, pure and simple….The detail, depth and simple intelligence of her compositions makes her an artist whose work will endure.” -Rolling Stone.

Her latest album The Loving Kind finds Nanci Griffith at the top of her game as a songwriter, interpreter, and singer. The Loving Kind, which skillfully touches on newsworthy issues as well as matters of the heart, proves that such a writing style can capture life at its most complex. Featuring nine songs written by Griffith and her collaborators, and four well-chosen covers, the album takes its place alongside the consistently acclaimed work of this Grammy Award-winning, genre-defying artist.
