Set List: Lucinda Williams Opens New Tour in New Haven, CT

Lucinda Williams opened her tour in support of the new album, The Ghosts of Highway 20, on Saturday night at College Street Music Hall in New Haven, CT.

While Williams' is promoting the new album, she made sure not to make her set too top heavy with new material, playing only four tracks from the set and not playing any until almost half way through the main set.

In the End, Lucinda played more songs, five, from her classic Car Wheels on a Gravel Road while mixing in three each from 2014's Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone and 2001's Essence.
