Allison Moore (5/07)

Wednesday May 7th, 2008

When Allison Moorer ( decided to make a record of other people's songs, you know she wasn't just going to grab a handful of whatever and set her slow burning alto to them like a low flame to dry twigs. No, the woman whose very first single was nominated for an Academy Award, whose albums have been marked by an artistic restlessness and passion and whose willingness to expose her deepest truths has yielded some of pop music's subtlest, but most enduring treasures wanted to do something special - and in looking around the vastness of American music, she realized how much of the glory of women songwriters was overlooked and oversimplified.

Allison Moorer (recently live on Jay Leno) will open for Steve Earle, one of the most influential country-rock stars of the 1980s and 90s. Show starts at 8pm. For tickets call the Playhouse Square box office at 216.241.6000 or visit
