John Hiatt

When: Mon., Oct. 24, 8 p.m. 2011

He's America's answer to Neil Young—an enduring, flinty-voiced roots rocker with a spark-throwing six-string style. The Indianapolis native's rough-hewn country-blues frequently veers into heartland rock with no-nonsense arrangements. Hiatt's released 20 albums in nearly four decades, most better received critically than commercially. There was a moment during the late '80s and early '90s when his profile rose due to a few fine releases (Bring the Family, Slow Turning) and his supergroup Little Village (Nick Lowe, Jim Keltner, Ry Cooder). His latest, Dirty Jeans and Mudslide Hymns, boasts brighter production and more sonic detail, all in service to another batch of keenly sketched songs. With Lilly Hiatt. —Chris Parker
