Details: Described as “Contemporary and timeless…” by The New York Times, and “Quietly brilliant…” by The Irish Times, Jeffrey Foucault mines the darker seams of American music to create a haunting and visceral collision of rock, country, folk, and blues. In two decades on the road across the United States and Europe he’s released a string of critically acclaimed albums showcasing a tersely elegant brand of songwriting, moving seamlessly between full-throated rock’n’roll and plaintive, intimate solo pieces to inhabit the borderlands of heartbreak and memory.

Tickets: $32, $28 & $24 (student, pkg & group discounts available)
