With a guitar prowess few women possess and a soulful voice that belted out the blues at the tender age of 12, Bonnie Raitt has made music her life. More than just a best-selling artist, respected guitarist, expressive singer, and accomplished songwriter, Bonnie Raitt has become an institution in American music. Born to a musical family, the nine-time Grammy winner, who Rolling Stone Magazine named one of the “100 Greatest Singers of All Time,” is the daughter of celebrated Broadway singer John Raitt (Carousel, Oklahoma!, The Pajama Game) and accomplished pianist/singer Marge Goddard.
A career spanning three decades has made her a legend. Her unique blend of blues, rock and R&B won her a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Some of her hits include “Runaway,” “Thing Called Love,” “Love Has No Pride,” “Give It Up or Let Me Go,” “True Love Is Hard to Find,” and “I Can’t Make You Love Me.”
With the release of her twentieth album, Dig in Deep, Raitt is returning to Fraze Pavilion after her sold-out performance in 2012. Don’t miss this talented blues performer. She’s sure to give you “Something to Talk About.”

Richard Thompson Trio
Richard Thompson has been called “the finest rock songwriter after Bob Dylan and the best electric guitarist since Jimi Hendrix.” He’s our greatest living guitarist, yet it’s easy to take Richard Thompson for granted. He tours most years and puts out strong albums just as frequently. His new one, Still, has a title that mocks this consistency. Thompson’s genre defying mastery of both acoustic and electric guitar along with dizzying energy and onstage wit continue to earn Richard Thompson massive new fans and a place as one of the most distinctive virtuosos in folk rock history. Michael Jerome on drums can handle anything Thompson throws at him, while, Davey Faragher on bass, shares the same kind of rapport.
