Blues-rock singer/songwriter Beth Hart at UB Center for the Arts


Mon, Oct 17th 2016 01:00 pm

Tickets on sale Friday, Oct. 21

The Center for the Arts, University at Buffalo, presents Beth Hart at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 28, 2017. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday.

A Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter, Hart is riding a creative tidal wave, firing out acclaimed albums, hooking up with the biggest names in music, and rocking the house each night with her celebrated burnt-honey voice. Her latest album, "Fire On The Floor," will be released on Feb. 3 (Provogue/Mascot Label Group).

Born in Los Angeles, Hart released several hit albums through the 1990s, then reignited in the post-millennium as both a solo artist and the vocalist for guitar heroes Joe Bonamassa, Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy and Slash. She has been nominated for three Blues Music Awards.

But it's in recent times that Hart has truly blossomed. In April 2015, she released "Better Than Home," a critical and commercial smash that topped the iTunes blues chart and was crowned No. 4 "Best Blues Album Of The Year" by Mojo magazine.

Already a star in Europe, the U.S. has embraced her, too, packing venues in major cities. Perhaps her greatest live performance to date was seen by millions of television viewers, when her tribute to Buddy Guy on the Kennedy Center Honors special received one of the only two standing ovations of the evening.

Tickets are available from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays at the Center for the Arts box office, and online at tickets.com. To charge tickets, call 1-888-223-6000. For more information, call 716-645-2787, or visit www.ubcfa.org or www.bethhart.com.
