Jeff Tweedy, indie-rock iconoclast and singer-songwriter of singular contemporary influence, brings his sprawling American vision to West Texas for an evening solo performance on January 21st. Tweedy’s name has long been associated with the alternative-country movement he helped spawn in the late 80’s with the groundbreaking group Uncle Tupelo. A series of collaborations, projects, and acclaimed releases with his own band Wilco have since revealed an experimental and relentlessly creative spirit that confounds simple categorization. Tweedy’s voice, a ghostly summons, and his lyrics — imbued at times with an elemental wit, pain and anxiety, and shimmering in other moments with a strange, cryptic beauty — are uniquely suited to the intimate grandeur of Marfa’s Liberty Hall.
BALLROOM MARFA is thrilled to be part of this evening with one of America’s most talented and idiosyncratic songwriters.
