Two of the greatest Americana legends Lyle Lovett and John
Hiatt to play the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium on

with no qualms about levelling barricades and they are all
about the music. "While it's difficult to explain exactly
what you're going to get listening to these distinct
American voices, it ain't gonna be dull."
