On Nov. 9, 2021, Memorial Hall will host John Hiatt and The Jerry Douglas Band as part of the Longworth-Anderson Series.

Tickets go on sale at noon on April 16 via memorialhallotr.com or 513-977-8838.

Hiatt and the Jerry Douglas Band just collaborated on a new album, Leftover Feelings, which will be released May 21, 2021 on New West Records.

Singer-songwriter Hiatt got his start in Nashville in the 1970s. He has recorded more than 20 studio albums and worked with artists including Bob Dylan, Emmylou Harris, B.B. King and Willie Nelson.

The Jerry Douglas Band is famous for reinventing and modernizing the Dobro, a largely unplayed instrument, similar to a guitar. Douglas has performed on over 1,500 albums.

Leftover Feelings brings new sounds from the two artists into one cohesive album. Described in a press release as "neither a Bluegrass album nor a return to Hiatt’s 1980s days with slide guitar greats Ry Cooder and Sonny Landreth," its lyrics explore "family, loss, tough redemption, and long-term love."

“There’s no drummer, yet these grooves are deep and true,” the release continues. “And while the up-tempo songs are, as ever, filled with delightful internal rhyme and sly aggression, The Jerry Douglas Band’s empathetic musicianship nudges Hiatt to performances that are startlingly vulnerable.”
