Singer Songwriter Jim Lauderdale

Come to the legendary Fitzgerald’s Night Club to see “singer’s songwriter” Jim Lauderdale and acclaimed songwriter Matthew Francis Anderson November 17, and stay at the nearby and affordable Best Western Plus Chicago Hotel at Hillside!

Jim Lauderdale is one of the best known of the least known (to the public) performers in the country. He’s been on the road for three decades, and is debuting his newest album “London Southern.” A two-time Grammy Award winner, Jim has written songs for Ralph Stanley, Elvis Costello, Lucinda Williams, Blake Shelton, Mary Chapin Carpenter and many others. He is the cohost of a radio/podcast show for PBS.

Mathew Francis Anderson has been compared to the great John Prine. His new album is “Slow, the Summer Burned.” His music reminds one of Bruce Springsteen and Steve Earle. “His song ‘Blue Line’ proves he has a poet’s eye for detail, a trait that separates good writers from legions of hacks.” American Songwriter Magazine

Fitzgerald’s Night Club is famous across the country. “A musical gem.” The New York Times. “Slightly off the beaten path but right on the mark for music lovers.” Metromix Chicago
