Carrie Rodriguez: The Sacred Heart Tour
8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
“Fits together like honey and smoke in a warm but vibrant Texas breeze.”—AllMusic
With her new release Lola (out February 19 on her Luz Records label), Austin-based Chicana singer/songwriter Carrie Rodriguez realizes her dream of presenting her own vibrant take on Tex-Mex music. The fan-funded project, which features an all-star band that includes Bill Frisell, Viktor Krauss, and Raul Malo among others, pairs her ranchera-inspired original tunes sung in English and “Spanglish” alongside contemporary interpretations of songs by her favorite Mexican composers delivered in Spanish. The result is heartfelt music that evokes, in her own words, “the rich landscape of blended cultures that I call home.” Rodriguez and Luke Jacobs, both accomplished singers and multi-instrumentalists, bring their soulful sound to our intimate Performance Space—set up cabaret style with wine and beer service—with these stirring songs summoned from deep within.
