Named by VH1 as one of the 30 greatest women in rock, Rickie Lee Jones has been hard to classify ever since she came on the scene with the instant classic "Chuck E.'s in Love" in 1979. She has challenged her listeners and the establishment with an absorbing musical vision that defies border and classification; rocking the culture of singer-song writerdom with her refusal to conform to the stayed and careful eloquence of the folk rock generation that came before her. Neither punk nor pop, she totters on a thread of her own devise, performing straight jazz, blues, synth pop, new wave rock, pop covers, trip-hop, gospel, ambitious singer-songwriter music, and more, putting her unique spin on each style.
A special evening with Rickie Lee Jones taking her audience on an intimate journey, reminiscing, telling tales, jokes and, of course, singing those inimitable songs: "Chuck E's in Love," "Last Chance Texaco," "Woody and Dutch on the Slow Train to Peking" "Danny's All-Star Joint.". Or her brilliant renditions of covers: "Making Whoopee," for which she won a Grammy® in 1990, the Left Banke’s "Walk Away Renee," Billy Strayhorn’s "Lush Life," or Lennon & McCartney's "For No One." Each new round of music-making activity by Rickie Lee Jones is different. But a few things remain the same: she is at her best in an intimate space, her live concerts have been, almost without exception, unforgettable experiences over her more than 30 years of performing, and she is always Rickie Lee Jones.
Bull Run is a full-service, farm-to-table restaurant in a New England Tavern built in 1740. Plenty of free parking and tons of atmosphere.

A very disappointing concert. Started 30 minutes late. After about 30 minutes of playing RLJ seemed to have trouble concentrating and the songs all sounded alike: sad but spacey. She made little... Expand
