Award-winning, revered singer/songwriter Lucinda Williams is working to help independent music venues during this time with the announcement of “Lu’s Jukebox.” Scheduled as a six-episode series of full-band performances in-studio, “Lu’s Jukebox” will feature a themed set of songs by other artists, curated by the multi-Grammy award winner.
“Lu’s Jukebox” streamed performances will be accessed through the Ponte vedra Concert Hall website, and set up via Mandolin in order to raise funds to assist performing musicians through these trouble times caused by COVID-19.

The second episode of “Lu’s Jukebox” will take place on Thursday, November 5, 2020 with “Southern Soul: From Memphis to Muscle Shoals & More”.

The third episode of “Lu’s Jukebox” will take place on Thursday, November 19, 2020 with “Bob's Back Pages: A Night of Bob Dylan Songs.” In this episode, Lucinda pays homage to one of the most deeply rooted musical influences of her career, Bob Dylan. His was a voice that has informed her, in part, from the moment she first heard Highway 61 at the tender age of twelve years old. She truly is bringing it all back home with this collection of songs.
The fourth episode of “Lu’s Jukebox” will take place on Thursday, December 3, 2020 with “Funny How Time Slips Away: A Night of 60's Country Classics.” From Nashville to Bakersfield and every high and lonesome corner of the country in between, Lucinda refreshes classic Country favorites like “Night Life”, “Fist City” and more!

The final episode of “Lu’s Jukebox” will take place on Thursday, December 31, 2020 with “It’s Only Rock and Roll: A Tribute to the Rolling Stones.” Lucinda and the band tear through the material of the Rolling Stones in a way that only one irreverent, Honky Tonk Woman can. This episode will not only end the series, but the entire year with a bang (and hopefully a kiss) as it airs on New Years Eve.
