The Center for the Arts, University at Buffalo, presents Beth Hart at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 28. Tickets are $35 and are on sale now. Rachael Sage will open the concert.
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. Beth's 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 '90s, then reignited in the post-millennium as both a solo artist and the vocalist for guitar heroes such as 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. Hart packed venues in major cities and received a nomination from the American Blues Foundation in the category of "Contemporary Blues Female Artist."
But maybe 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.
