Joan Osborne to play acoustic show at Showcase Live

Joan Osborne will swing through Massachusetts next week for a show at Showcase Live in Foxboro. Set for Wednesday, August 25, tickets are now available through Ticketmaster for $25. She will be accompanied by Carsie Blanton.

The Foxboro show is a stop on a brief East Coast tour, where she will be performing acoustic. “I recently did a show for WXPN radio in Philadelphia – just myself and Keith Cotton on piano,” she said of the tour’s inspiration in statement. “Despite my fears about my very limited guitar skills, I had a great time onstage and when I talked to fans afterward we all agreed that it was very interesting to hear the songs in a very bare-bones fashion. The songs we will do will be drawn from my studio albums and live recordings, along with some special only-on-this-tour covers thrown in (any fan requests will be considered), plus some sneak peeks at new material from an album in the works,” Osborne said in a press release.

Osborne, who is best known for her 1995 smash hit “One of Us”, released her last studio album, Little Wild One, in 2008.
