The Ridgefield Playhouse 80 East Ridge, Ridgefield

About Lyle Lovett: A singer, composer and actor, Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums. Coupled with his gift for storytelling, the Texas-based musician fuses elements of country, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-defying manner that breaks down barriers. Since his self-titled debut in 1986, Lyle Lovett has evolved into one of music’s most vibrant and iconic performers. Among his many accolades, besides the four Grammy Awards, he was given the Americana Music Association’s inaugural Trailblazer Award, and was named Texas State Musician. About Lisa Loeb: Dallas native Lisa Loeb is a Grammy Award-winning singer songwriter, touring musician and philanthropist who started her career with the platinum-selling hit song “Stay (I Missed You)” from the film Reality Bites.

She followed that remarkable feat with several hit singles and six albums, two of which were certified gold.
