More than a best-selling artist, respected guitarist, expressive singer and accomplished songwriter, Bonnie Raitt is an American music institution. On Friday, March 15, the Maui Arts & Cultural Center (MACC) will present this legendary singer and blues-rock guitarist in concert at the Yokouchi Pavilion/A&B Amphitheater.
With the release of her 19th album, "Slipstream," Bonnie Raitt is starting anew. The record marks her return to studio recording after seven years, it launches her own label, Redwing Records, and it delivers some of the most rewarding music of her remarkable career. The title of the album is significant for Bonnie --"Slipstream" is an indication of her place in the music community.
"I'm in the slipstream of all these styles of music," said Raitt. "I'm so inspired and so proud to continue these traditions, whether it's reggae or soul or blues. I'm in the slipstream of those who came before me, and I'm leaving one for those behind me."
Bonnie Raitt will perform at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center’s Yokouchi Pavilion/A&B Amphitheater on Friday, March 15.
This nine-time Grammy Award winner, who Rolling Stone magazine named one of the "100 Greatest Singers of All Time," is best known for her soulful, unaffected way of singing and her uncanny technique in blues and slide guitar. From her self-titled debut album in 1971 to her 1990s skyrocket to popular and critical acclaim with "Nick of Time," "Luck of the Draw" and "Longing in Their Hearts," Raitt has become one of the most recognized crossover artists in the music business. She was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000. Since then, she has released both retrospective and collaborative records.
Bonnie's string of hit singles includes "Have A Heart," "Nick of Time," "Thing Called Love," "Something to Talk About," "I Can't Make You Love Me" and "Love Sneakin' Up On You."
