SOLD OUT! GNP and Waterfront Concerts are excited to present Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Bonnie Raitt, and The Richard Thompson Trio live at the Maine State Pier for one show only on Friday, August 19th as part of the Machias Saving’s Bank Concert Series. With more than half of her Spring Tour dates already sold out, Raitt returns to cities across the country where she has long been seen as one of music’s great entertainers, including Boston, Philadelphia, Austin, Seattle, and Portland, among others.
Raitt will be joined by her longtime touring band: James “Hutch” Hutchinson (bass), Ricky Fataar (drums), and George Marinelli (guitar), along with Mike Finnigan (keyboards).
Bonnie Raitt’s new album ‘Dig In Deep’ (Redwing Records) was released to critical acclaim on February 26th, with Hal Horowitz from American Songwriter calling it a “distinguished and near perfect entry into a classy, bulging catalog that has seen few missteps.” Of Raitt’s singing and playing, Randy Lewis of the LA Times said ‘Dig In Deep’ is masterful in “highlighting her sultry, sandpapery vocals and down-and-dirty electric guitar work.” The Oakland Press’ Gary Graff said “Raitt is breathing fire, as sharp and potent vocally as she’s ever been and still wicked with her guitar slide,” while Thom Jurek of AllMusic said “Raitt is now in full control of her career, delivering consistently great music as a result.”
Bonnie Raitt will made her television debut for ‘Dig In Deep’ on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on March 3rd, followed by The View on March 9th.Raitt hosted a Facebook Live Q&A on release day where she answered fan questions and performed Dig In Deep’s first single, “Gypsy In Me.”
