Here are the details for the four new concerts:

DAVID LINDLEY
With CHRIS SMITHER
Friday, March 17, 7:30pm
$29.50
Multi-instrumentalist David Lindley performs music that redefines the word “eclectic.” Well known for his guitar work with Jackson Browne and Ry Cooder, Lindley effortlessly combines American folk, blues, and bluegrass traditions with elements of music from around the world on a multitude of
stringed instruments. Singer-songwriter-guitarist Chris Smither – who composed the blues standard “Love Me Like a Man” and many others – fuses his traditional blues-based finger-style picking with themes often employed by modern poets and humanist philosophers.

LISA FISCHER & GRAND BATON
Saturday, March 18, 8pm
$34
After four decades of singing background for icons like the Rolling Stones, Tina Turner, Chaka Khan and Nine Inch Nails – and receiving a Grammy for her own song “How Can I Ease the Pain” – Lisa Fischer is finally stepping back into the spotlight. Lisa’s story portrayed in the Oscar-winning 2013
documentary “Twenty Feet from Stardom” showcased her amazing vocal range and her ability to reach the hearts of her listeners, leaving audiences eager to see and hear more of her mesmerizing mix of soul, jazz, rock, gospel, pop, folk and classical.

SARA WATKINS
With MIKE + RUTHY
Wednesday, May 24, 7:30pm
$29.50
Singer-songwriter-fiddler Sara Watkins of Nickel Creek performs an evening of contemporary bluegrass, country, pop and folk with her band in support of her latest album Young in All the Wrong Ways. Her most recent appearance at The Egg was last year on the Use Your Voice Tour with Patty Griffin and Anais Mitchell. Mike + Ruthy of The Mammals will open the show with their own brand of folk-rock performing on fiddle, guitar, ukulele and banjo.

BRUCE COCKBURN
Sunday, November 5, 7pm
$29.50, $34.50 & $39.50
Bruce Cockburn’s music explores urban, political and social issues in a poetically and rhythmically unique style that has produced classic songs such as “Wonderin’ Where the Lions Are,” “Lovers in a Dangerous Time” and “If I Had a Rocket Launcher.” He will be performing with his full band.
