Singer-songwriter Patty Griffin recently kicked off a tour in support of her seventh album, “American Kid,” featuring the song “Don’t Let Me Die in Florida.”
The album “was written to honor my father,” Griffin says. It’s her first collection of mostly new songs since “Children Running Through” in 2007. Before “American Kid,” Griffin recorded the Grammy-winning “Downtown Church” in 2010 and was a member of Band of Joy with Robert Plant.
The tour features a concert Wednesday night at the Neptune Theatre. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $36.50 (or $38 day of show). To purchase by phone, call 1-877-784-4849 or go to the Neptune website.
