Amos Lee with Special Guest MUTLU Performing at Capitol Theatre in Clearwater
Clearwater, FL (April 8, 2009) - "Ruth Eckerd Hall On The Road" presents a third pre-renovation concert at the historic Capitol Theatre in the Cleveland Street District in Downtown Clearwater when guitarist & singer/songwriter Amos Lee performs on Saturday, May 9th at 8 pm.  Tickets go on sale Friday, April 10th at 10 am.  Special guest MUTLU will open the show.

Amos Lee, who hails from Philadelphia, is known for a musical style that encompasses folk, soul and jazz. He has toured with musicians such as Bob Dylan, Elvis Costello, Norah Jones, Paul Simon and Merle Haggard. His three album releases, Amos Lee (#2 on Billboard's Heatseekers Chart), Supply and Demand (#76 on Billboard's Hot 100 Album Chart) and Last Days at the Lodge (#29 on Billboard's Hot 100 Album Chart) have all been met with commercial and critical success.  Billboard Magazine said of Lee: "Proves that real emotion and true artistry are not always wasted on the youth."
Ruth Eckerd Hall and the City of Clearwater have joined forces to renovate the historic Capitol Theatre and patrons at the Amos Lee concert will get a rare glimpse of one of the oldest operating theatres in Florida prior to the major renovations that will begin later this year.  Currently Ruth Eckerd Hall is in the planning stages to raise funds to renovate the theatre to restore it to its 1921 grandeur.
