Eight Gigs: Lucinda Williams

Sat., May. 27, 9 p.m., Nevada County Fairgrounds, $20-$95

Unlike other festivals of its ilk, the annual Strawberry Music Festival brings a long tradition of quality artists. Additionally, the lovely setting of the fairgrounds couldn’t be more apropos for a Memorial Day weekend festival that prides itself on exposing new, emerging and heritage artists. Lucinda Williams headlines the Saturday festivities and brings with her a sizable following of her own fans who enjoy her songcraft and ability to produce a fine live show.
