Rickie Lee Jones and Madeleine Peyroux

Peace Concert Hall

Two-time Grammy® winner Rickie Lee Jones exploded onto the pop scene in 1978 and has made a career of fearlessly experimenting with her sound and persona over 15 critically acclaimed albums. Rolling Stone magazine put her on its cover twice in two years, and Saturday Night Live gave her an unprecedented three songs for her second appearance. She defies convention with her sometimes brazen sexuality and a mixed bag of jazz, rock and what has come to be known as 'confessional' songwriter performances. 
  
Jones’ latest album, The Other Side of Desire, was written, recorded and rooted in the city of New Orleans, where she lives on the opposite side of the street made famous by Tennessee Williams. Produced by John Porter (of Roxy Music) and Mark Howard, this is the first new music Jones has written in over a decade.
 
Madeleine Peyroux’s releases range from 2004’s Careless Love – a diverse collection of covers – to 2009’s Bare Bones, which featured all original compositions. Twenty years after her recording debut, Dreamland, she continues her musical journey of exploring beyond the ordinary with the live collection Secular Hymns, a spirited and soulful masterwork of loping, skipping, sassy, feisty and sexy tunes delivered in a captivating mélange of funk, blues and jazz.
