14-02-2018 12:00:00 14-02-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York Lizz Wright | 8:30 PM The last time Lizz Wright performed as a part of American Songbook in 2009, the New York Times described the Georgia-born singer-songwriter as "an awesome talent [who] stands in a direct line of descent from Odetta through Tracy Chapman, singers whose source of sustenance is the African-American spiritual tradition." A lot of life has happened for Wright since then, and her latest album, 2017's "potent, sanctified" Grace (Guardian, U.K.), a New York Times Best Album of the Year, reveals a new register that lends an affecting vulnerability to her sensual contralto voice and regal poise. Spurred by the divisiveness of the 2016 election, Wright felt compelled to reconnect with her Southern heritage both physically and artistically. The resulting sound boosts the down-home blues and gospel elements of her musical style that also traverses jazz, folk, and confessional singer-songwriter traditions, arriving at a place where all are welcome. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=280899 Lincoln Center Lincoln Center
