Valerie June

FUV Live at Zankel Hall 2014-15

by Rita Houston

It is an honor to once again curate a series of shows at Carnegie's Zankel Hall. Zankel is a beautiful, comfortable venue and the perfect spot to see Valerie June and Shawn Colvin. Each season I get to invite artists to play here, and as you would imagine it becomes a very special performance, not just another stop on the tour. I'm especially pleased to present a classic legendary songwriter like Shawn Colvin alongside a cool emerging artist like Valerie June.

Get your tickets now for these shows, they're sure to sell out.

Valerie June - Live Concert - 2013

by Rita Houston

Valerie June draws on the rich wellspring of American roots music to create her fresh modern take on the blues. Her love of the blues tradition is clear, but her own life experiences — from growing up in Jackson, Tennessee to living in her current home of Brooklyn — fully inform her songs. This FUV Live performance from City Winery is one of the most musically wide-ranging sets I've heard in a long while. From her solo songs to full band arrangements with trumpet, this show is a rewarding listen and marks the arrival of a new artist worth knowing about.
