Brandi Carlile, The Mavericks join Tanglewood 2020 Popular Artists lineup

Posted

LENOX — Three-time Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile and The Mavericks have been added to Tanglewood's 2020 Popular Artists Series.

Carlile is scheduled to make her Tanglewood debut 7 p.m. June 26. The Mavericks bring their mix of country, Tex-Mex, and Latino sounds to the Koussevitzky Music Shed 2:30 p.m. June 28.

Carlile is on tour following the release of her 2019 Grammy-winning album, "By the Way, I Forgive You." Produced by Dave Cobb and Shooter Jennings and recorded at Nashville's historic RCA Studio A, the album includes 10 new songs written by Carlile and longtime collaborators and bandmates Tim and Phil Hanseroth, including "The Joke."

The opening act for last August's Popular Artist concert by the British rock band Squeeze, The Mavericks, who are celebrating their 30th anniversary, will take center stage with everything from their essential hit "Dance the Night Away" to the Tejano-ska hybrid of "Back in Your Arms Again" — and their take on The Beatles' "Back in the U.S.S.R." Rock band Los Lobos ("La Bamba," "Volver, Volver," "Let's Say Goodnight") shares the program.

Carlile and The Mavericks join a 2020 Popular Artists lineup that includes Ringo Starr (June 19); Trey Anastasio with the Boston Pops (June 20); Judy Collins and Arlo Guthrie (June 21); NPR's "Wait, Wait ... Don't Tell Me" with host Peter Sagal (Aug. 27); and James Taylor (July 4).

Tickets for James Taylor's concert on July 4 go on sale 10 a.m. Feb. 3. Tickets for all other Tanglewood 2020 season concerts, including all other popular artist concerts, go on sale 10 a.m. Feb. 9.

All tickets can be purchased online at tanglewood.org or by telephone at 888-266-1200.
