Ruth Eckerd Hall On The Road presents GRAMMY® Award-winner Jonny Lang at The Palladium Theatre on Saturday, October 1 at 8 pm.

At the age of 16, American blues, gospel and rock singer-songwriter Jonny Lang found incredible success with the release of his major label debut album Lie To Me. Fame does not seem to have impacted him from being the same country farm boy from Fargo, North Dakota who got his start in the local clubs of Minneapolis. He survived the passage of youth to adulthood, fell in love, began a family and in the process passed through the life lessons we all endure. He has a keen sense of what he aims to achieve creatively, what music means to him and is focused on the impact that his songs bring to the lives of those that encounter his repertoire. For Lang, after the release of Fight For My Soul, he entered a chapter wherein he has found his true voice.

The path Lang has been on has brought him the opportunity to interact with some of the most respected legends in music. On the way up, he shared the stage with The Rolling Stones, B.B. King, Aerosmith, Sting and Buddy Guy.
