Fish Creek, Wis. (August 16, 2021) – On Sunday, August 22, at 8 p.m., roots/rock songwriter John Hiatt and Dobro virtuoso Jerry Douglas will take the stage for a high-energy performance at DCA (Door Community Auditorium).
The Los Angeles Times calls John Hiatt “one of rock’s most astute singer-songwriters of the last 40 years.” A master lyricist and satirical storyteller, Hiatt delivers songs filled with tales of redemption, relationships, and surrendering on his own terms. Based in acoustic blues and roots/rock, Hiatt’s songs have been recorded by Bob Dylan, Bonnie Raitt (“Thing Called Love”), and Emmylou Harris.
Allmusiccalls Hiatt’s songs “fearlessly honest…compelling and beautifully crafted.”
Joining Hiatt on the DCA Main Stage will be world-renowned Dobro virtuoso (and 14-time Grammy winner) Jerry Douglas and his band. The Dobro is an American resonator guitar known for its bright, open tone. Douglas (“the Jimi Hendrix of the Dobro”) is best known for his work with the Earls of Leicester, Alison Krauss and Union Station, and artists like Garth Brooks, Ray Charles, and Paul Simon.
The New York Times calls Jerry Douglas “Dobro’s matchless contemporary master.”
Hiatt and Douglas’s performance is made possible with support from presenting sponsor EH Barker, and by major sponsors Bob and Paula Cummings and Kocourek Auto.
The show begins at 8 p.m. on Sunday, August 22. Tickets range from $55-78 and are sold out. Face masks are required regardless of vaccination status.
