Heart To Play & Chat At Grammy Museum

The Grammy Museum has lined up a great evening featuring not only music but also conversation with Ann and Nancy Wilson, the sisters that turned the world of rock on its ears back in the ‘70s with the band you’ve come to know as Heart.

It almost seems absurd that there were very few women rockers before Heart emerged on the scene in the mid 1970s. Sure, there was bluesy belter Janis Joplin and Grace Slick was in Jefferson Airplane. But a band featuring a woman guitarist while her sister sang her heart out from center stage? Virtually unheard of.

Heart is such a solid cornerstone of American rock that it often feels as if the Wilson sisters have been around forever. With hits like “Magic Man,” “Barracuda,” and “Even It Up,” Heart’s music has spanned generations and established the band as a classic American act up there with Eagles, Steve Miller Band and Journey.

And it all comes together with “An Evening With Heart” May 24 at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles. Presented by the museum and MusicCares, the evening will feature Heart performing and being interviewed in front of an intimate crowd of 200. The sisters will also take questions from the audience after the interview.

This is also a good time to mention Heart is prepping its first studio album of new material in six years. Red Velvet Car is slated for a late summer release. Meanwhile, you can also catch the Wilsons on tour as Heart has plenty of headline dates as well as appearances on this year’s tour.

Tickets for “An Evening With Heart” are $60 and are on sale now. For more information, click here for the Grammy Museum website, here for MusicCares and here for the Heart website.
