KALAMAZOO -- Bonnie Raitt gave her all for a sold-out State Theatre Saturday night.
It seemed at the end that Raitt didn't want to stop singing. And the audience, giving her standing ovations after each song of her encore, didn't want her to stop. Raitt and her band kept going until after 11 p.m.

Bonnie Raitt and the Blind Boys of Alabama Close the Summer Concert Series at Ironstone by Carol Swartzlander
Murphys, CA....Although a chill filled the night air in Murphys Saturday night, it quickly warmed up as the Blind Boys from Alabama hit the stage at the Kautz Ironstone Ampitheather. The group, who has been together 60 years, warmed the audience for headliner Bonnie Raitt. Both the Blind Boys and Raitt had the audience on their feet most of the night, as they sang songs from their latest CD releases, as well as old favorites. Saturday night's concert wrapped up the summer concert series at the Ironstone venue........

Clown/activist Wavy Gravy will be long remembered for "What we have in mind is breakfast in bed for 400,000," but his enduring contribution takes place around the world from Woodstock, where he saves eyeballs in the Third World.
Raitt rips it up at Britt By Bill Varble - Mail Tribune
September 02, 2008
Bonnie Raitt allowed as how it was nice to be back — especially without the chainsaws. That was a reference to 1996, when Raitt and Jackson Browne played a benefit for environmental groups at the Britt Pavilion, although it wasn't a Britt show, and were greeted by the angry snarl of chainsaws fired up by protesting timber industry supporters.
The only roar at Britt Monday night was applause.
Raitt is as committed to green causes as ever. Her t...

Doheny Blues Festival closes with superb performance !
With a bright full moon positioned over the waters of the Pacific, Bonnie Raitt brought a magical close to the 11th annual Doheny Blues Festival on Sunday night.
Her 90-minute set capped more than two dozen performances that played out at the two-day festival staged at Doheny State Beach over the weekend. For those, and I count myself in that camp, who had only seen the 58-year-old singer-guitarist play in an indoor venue, watching Raitt perform at an outdoor ev...

Jazz Festival-Giving Back by Elizabeth Reinholt
A lot of musicians performing at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival are also giving their time to a city still struggling after Hurricane Katrina.
The six-day festival, spread out over the last two weekends, wrapped up Sunday.
Singer Harry Connick Junior was at work with a paint brush at the Musicians' Village. That's a development he started with saxophonist Branford Marsalis to give displaced musicians a home. Connick's daughters swept up construction debris. He says he envisioned it as a...
Just as the Stones finally hit their stride, they have to go and end the tour. I jest, of course. There have been some great times over the past 15 months, but they really, really went out with a bang in Vancouver on Saturday.
