Singer/songwriter Lui Collins performs at 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 23 at the River Theater, 230 W. Marine Drive.

Lui Collins established herself as a presence in the folk community in the late seventies and eighties. Collins took up clawhammer banjo in 1999 to delve deeper into southern Appalachian music on her newest and seventh solo recording, "Leaving Fort Knox."

International folk publication Dirty Linen wrote of Collins: "Her gorgeously poetic lyrics are wrapped around a solid bed of traditional- and old-timey-influenced music, which is at once simple and perfect for conveying the mood and subtleties of her words."

Michael Delvin of Music Matters Review wrote, "There are relatively few artists who are bringing a traditional sensibility to modern songwriting... Lui Collins is among the barefoot royalty of this group, even when she wears her All Star hightops!"

Tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for seniors and students.
