Bettye LaVette to perform on Austin City Limits

For the past 33 years, Austin City Limits has been televising rare and intimate performances from some of the most important artists in music. On October 11th, soul legend Bettye LaVette will take her place in a long list of luminaries who have appeared on the show — everyone from Ray Charles to Van Morrison.

“When Austin City Limits debuted in 1975 with Willie Nelson as its first performer, no one – not the producers, not the network, not the fans, not even Willie – knew that this 60-minute show from a PBS station in a mid-level market would become a cultural institution. But we have, thanks to an impressive roster of artists drawn to our straightforward, no-muss-no-fuss aesthetic and a production team that works solely to highlight the artist. In studio 6A, the spotlight sits squarely where it needs to be: on the performance.”
Bettye LaVette will be playing with her backing band — Alan Hill on keyboards, Darryl Pierce on drums, Brett Lucas on guitar and Chuck Bartel on bass – the veteran performer has been honing her skills, touring non-stop in support of 2007’s critically acclaimed and Grammy nominated The Scene of the Crime.
