She embarks on an extensive national tour, including a performance at Three Stages at Folsom Lake College, 10 College Parkway in Folsom, on Thursday, March 7, that will embrace both the emotional folk music of her country and her own pop sensibility.
Her performance at Three Stages comes on the heels of Moura’s fifth studio album and Decca debut, “Desfado.”
The 14-track album was co-produced by multiple Grammy-winner Larry Klein and recorded at the famed Henson Recording Studio in Los Angeles.
“Desfado” also features the legendary jazz musician Herbie Hancock on “Dream of Fire” and quintessential saxophonist Tim Reis of the Rolling Stones, on “Havemos De Acordar.”
Moura’s performance will showcase three tracks in English including a vulnerable rendition of Joni Mitchell’s “Case of You,” “Dreams of Fire” and the achingly soulful “Thank You.”
Showtime at Three Stages is 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are $19 to 29. Premium tickets are available for $39. Student with IDs pay $12. Tickets may be purchased online at threestages.net, from the Three Stages ticket office at 916-608-6888 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and two hours before show time.
