John Fullbright and Patty Griffin

Rialto Theatre / Tucson, AZ


Even though it was the end of the tour, opener John Fullbright’s voice was in good shape on his six or eight songs. In addition to guitar and harmonica, he impressed the audience on piano, an instrument I’d never heard him play before; some of his warm-up and ending noodleings were extremely accomplished. Overall, a solid set with lots of potential. Griffin then came on, opening with a solo number before the rest of the band came out and joined her (her guitar player especially showed some of his wizardry).
