Moon child Victoria Williams brings tunes to Shreveport House Concerts, 1508 Fairfield Ave, Sun, Jan 11, 7 pm

Victoria Williams

Victoria Williams is a latter-day Lead Belly. In California her unadorned tunes and plain-spoken stories have captivated musicians and fans for decades. She is known globally for her tune "Crazy Mary," which has been performed by Pearl Jam and Lou Reed.

Born and raised in Shreveport, she has been a Southern California moon child throughout her musical career. A series of interesting musical partnerships (and marriages) with figures such as Peter Case and Mark Olson (Jayhawks) have been part of the legend. DA Pennebaker made a movie about her: Victoria Williams – Happy Come Home. Numerous of her songs ("Century Plant," You R Loved") have become part of the American folk lexicon.

Williams will sing at Shreveport House Concerts, 1508 Fairfield Ave, on Sun, Jan 11, 7 pm.
