Beth Hart

Release Date: January 27, 2017

“She has the kind of belting blues-rock voice that could bring down light aircraft"”
Classic Rock Magazine

Buffalo, NY- The Center for the Arts, University at Buffalo presents Beth Hart on Tuesday, February 28, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $35 and are on sale now. Rachael Sage will open the concert.

Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Beth 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 that celebrated burnt-honey voice. Beth’s latest album, Fire On The Floor will be released on February 3, 2017 (Provogue/Mascot Label Group).

The Blues Magazine once dubbed Beth Hart "the ultimate female rock star." Born in Los Angeles, she released several hit albums through the ’90s, then reignited in the post-millennium as both a solo artist and the vocalist for guitar heroes like Joe Bonamassa, Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy and Slash. "Extraordinary," wrote The Times of her once-a- generation voice box, while The Guardian praised her "daring, brooding and angry" performances. She has been nominated for three Blues Music Awards.

But it's in recent times that Beth 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 #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 and receiving 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.
