The Chan Centre for the Performing Arts at the University of British Columbia (UBC) presents Ruthie Foster, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, and Carrie Rodriguez, the Lone Star State’s diverse and celebrated songwriters on November 8 at 8pm in the Chan Shun Concert Hall. Performing as part of the Texas Troubadours project, these three distinctive voices come together for the first time to swap songs and collaborate.
“I have always wanted to present a Texan songwriter circle,” says Joyce Hinton, Co-Managing Director of the Chan Centre. “Texas is a hotbed of great music where some of the most legendary and beloved songs have been produced. I was particularly drawn to these three artists: not only because they are superb performers and writers, but also because—more than any other grouping I have seen to date—they are so beautifully reflective of the diversity of Texan artists working in this genre today. Each will offer a different take on their home state’s songwriting tradition as one exceptional trio.”
