Todd Snider: It was an honor to host Todd for three sold out nights in June as the first act to perform at City Winery Atlanta.
Ani Difranco: Ani entertained the biggest crowd to date. Known for having an easy rapport with her audience, she conveyed this not only through the incredible virtuosity and energy with which she performed her songs, but also through the informal observations she shared between songs. The hour-and-a-half long, 20-song set was full of variety and amply displayed Ani’s prowess in both music and lyrics.
Macy Gray: The crowd LOVED Macy as she wove story and song through an intimate set. Highlights included “I Try” and a cover of Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters” with her jazz ensemble.
Aaron Neville: This summer, Atlanta welcomed Aaron Neville as he not only played his classic and timeless songs, but almost completely covered all the songs from his latest release, “Apache.”
Timothy B Schmit: In September, we hosted Rock n Roll Hall-of-Famer and Eagles bassist Timothy B Schmit for an intimate sold out show.
John Hiatt: One of the most respected and influential American singer-songwriters, John Hiatt played two sold-out shows when he came through Atlanta. John showcased music from an extensive catalog that has earned him several GRAMMY nods.
Patty Griffin: This fall we were lucky enough to book one of the most revered female vocalists, Patty Griffin. Patty performed two sold out shows in Atlanta, and we are honored that she made City Winery part of her tour.
Leon Russell: As Leon slid behind his custom-made digital baby grand, its frosty veneer a match with his mane and cowboy hat, he rolled effortlessly through the musical stew of grimy blues, twangy country and melodic pop balladry that has signaled one of the great careers in music. Leon wowed the crowd for two sold out shows. RIP Leon.
Richard Thompson: Richard’s three nights at City Winery were unique and special nights for his fans. His all-request shows encouraged fans to write songs on paper to later be drawn out of a hat. The songs included fan favorites as well as cover songs ranging from Michael Jackson to Elton John. His dry British humor and precise, but passionate, playing delighted the crowd.
Indigo Girls: Atlanta’s own Indigo Girls are closing out the year with two very intimate and special performances on New Year’s Eve.
