Event Information: Cuban-American roots-music sensation Raul Malo brings his chart-topping new album Sinners & Saints to a one-night-only show at AcA on his way from Texas to the East Coast and Europe. Malo is a musical chameleon, moving fluidly from alt-Country to Blues, Jazz and Latin, always connecting all through great vintage rock and roll. A master at infusing his songwriting with sonic ingenuity and emotional sincerity, Malo's performances are abundant with surprising twists, from the twang of a country guitar to the melancholy of a trumpet to the punctuations of a Mexican accordion. The founder of alt-Country band The Mavericks and of Latin All-Star group Los Super Seven, Malo has over the years collaborated with a who's who in music, from Willie Nelson to Emmylou Harris, Los Lobos to Susanna Baca, Joe Ely to Rick Trevino. Backed by a five-piece band and endowed with a phenomenal vocal range, Raul Malo is one of the great independent voices in music today. Hearing this extraordinary musician in the acoustically pure environment of AcA's 300-seat James D. Moncus Theater will be a memorable experience.
