Singer, songwriter and violinist Amanda Shires comes to Sixth & I Synagogue on February 16th for her Atmosphereless Tour, and by all accounts you should be there!

More recently known as one of the four members of The Highwomen (a country supergroup also with Brandi Carlile, Natalie Hemby and Maren Morris), Amanda has a rich solo career as well, actively releasing albums since 2005. She released her sixth album, To the Sunset (via Silver Knife), back in 2018. As if that’s not enough, she has also recorded music with her husband, Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit, among other artists.

From Texas, trying to articulate any specific music genre will lead to Americana, folk, country, and a bit of rock poised on the tip of your tongue.

One of her solo singles from To the Sunset, “Parking Lot Pirouette”, is a belt to the rafters, jazzy ode to ‘turning around’ and not leaving someone.

This should be an entertaining show, but sadly won’t have any of The Highwomen joining her on stage. But if songs like “Break Out the Champagne”, with its joyous, warbling lyrics are any indication, that won’t be necessary.

Get your tickets here.

Tickets are $29.50. Doors open at Sixth & I Synagogue at 6:30pm. Show at 7:30pm. Opener is L.A. Edwards.
