Lovett, Hiatt, and surprise guest Jeff Daniels offer memorable showPosted by Colleen Murray on January 31, 2011
Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt are a musical marriage that seems meant to be. Appearing together Monday night at the Michigan Theater for an acoustic show, the two singing-songwriting veterans traded songs back and forth for nearly two and a half hours and were, quite simply, superb.
But as extraordinary as those two were, leave it to a local to kick things over the top. Jeff Daniels, Chelsea-based bluesman and Hollywood leading man, was a surprise special guest, invited on stage to perform the nostalgic “Grandfather’s Hat,” one of his own compositions.
