Lucinda Williams’ Buick is in town, and it’s hot – Chicago Tribune

Posted: Wednesday, December 21, 2016

As one of the reigning queens of Americana, Lucinda Williams has her choice of top-shelf collaborators. When it comes to her backing band on tour, she relies on the rocking bluesy riffs of Buick 6.

The trio consists of drummer Butch Norton, guitarist Stuart Mathis and bassist David Sutton. They will perform with Williams when she comes to town for a three-night stand at SPACE in Evanston on Dec. 29, 30 and 31.

It promises to be a hot run of shows leading into New Year’s Eve. “There’s a whole amazing vibe with Lucinda,” says Norton, calling from his home in Los Angeles. “Every musician she’s ever had with her is there because they can play. She doesn’t tell you what to play. It’s very organic.”

Williams is equally enamored of Buick 6. “The best band I’ve ever had, hands down,” she said to the applauding crowd last year during a gig at the Stone Fox in Nashville.
