Liberty Hall is pleased to present Bruce Robison and Kelly Willis in concert on Sunday, December 15 at 8 p.m. This will be an evening of their best original music and some great Christmas and holiday favorites sprinkled in for the season.
Some of the music will be from their album Cheater’s Game, out now on Premium Records and released to widespread critical acclaim, The Wall Street Journal calls the album “a masterly collection,” while theAustin Chronicle praises, “Extraordinarily talented on their own, Kelly Willis and Bruce Robison prove themselves greater together than apart.” Widely recognized for their live shows together, Bruce and Kelly is on tour throughout the U.S. in celebration of the album.The long-awaited album features seven new songs and six cover songs. Of the material, Kelly comments, “The songs that we chose to cover were important in that they reflect what we love about country music.” Writers include Razzy Bayley, Hayes Carll, Don Williams, Dave Alvin, Robert Earl Keen and Lawrence Shoberg. “This is something that I’ve wanted to try for a couple of years,” explains Bruce. “At some point you decide: let’s see what this is like if we don’t keep it at arm’s length. It does feel like the time is right for us to do this together. Kelly is such an amazing singer, and she makes a song sound like it ought to sound.” In preparation for the album, the couple spent a year working through new material at live shows in an effort to find their musical voice. Once they had determined the kind of album they wanted to make, they traveled to Nashville to work with producer Brad Jones.
