On Monday, August 9th, Lobero Live presents Joan Armatrading, with guest opener Jamie McLean, in concert at the historic Lobero Theatre. Three-time Grammy Award-nominee Armatrading is singer, songwriter, and guitarist with roots in the West Indies who settled in the UK. Known as a true craftsman, her distinctive vocals and consummate musicianship have led to unanimous, widespread and consistent critical acclaim since the early 1970s. Joan Armatrading is indeed the whole package, an excellent song writer, a powerful vocalist, and acknowledgment as one of the best female guitarists there is.

At the Lobero she will be performing songs from her latest CD, This Charming Life, while special guest Jamie McLean, a former member of New Orleans’ Dirty Dozen Brass Band, is embarking upon his solo career.

Showtime is 8pm. For tickets or more information, see lobero.com, visit the Lobero box office, or call (805) 963-0761. The Lobero Theatre is at 33 East Canon Perdido Street in downtown Santa Barbara. KCSB is a media supporter of this all-ages event.
