Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Nanci Griffith will make her Midcoast stop Thursday, Dec. 2 at 7 p.m. for an intimate performance at the Strand Theatre, 345 Main St. The concert had been announced as canceled Monday night.

Griffith’s recording and touring history stretches back more than two decades. Her latest album, which skillfully touches on newsworthy issues as well as matters of the heart, proves that Griffith’s songwriting continues to capture life at its most complex. “The Loving Kind” features nine songs written by Griffith and her collaborators, as well as four well-chosen covers. These songs take their place alongside the consistently acclaimed work of this genre-defying artist, demonstrating that Griffith is still at the top of her game as a songwriter, interpreter and singer.

Griffith’s work as a songwriter and activist go hand in hand, and she has championed many social justice campaigns over her lifetime through the power of her music. Most recently, she has been at the forefront of the death penalty debate, which she reflects on in her new song “Not Innocent Enough.”

Griffith’s strong spirit is captured in her poignant lyrics and warm stage presence, which continue to inspire and enlighten audiences worldwide.

Reserved seating tickets are $43, available by calling the Strand at 594-0070 or online at rocklandstrand.com.
