Jewel set to perform in Grass Valley this summer

The Center for the Arts announced today that Jewel will make a concert stop in Grass Valley this summer. The alternative country musician will perform July 17 at the Grass Valley Veterans Building.

From the remote ranch of her Alaskan youth to the triumph of international stardom, four-time Grammy nominee Jewel, hailed by the New York Times as a “songwriter bursting with talents,” has enjoyed career longevity rare among her generation of artists.

Currently, Jewel is recording her 13th studio album, a follow-up to her first album, “Pieces of You,” due in 2015. Jewel lives on a working ranch in Stephenville, Texas, with her husband, world champion bull-riding superstar Ty Murray, and their son, Kase Townes Murray.

Tickets are $58 for members of the Center, $68 for the general public and $78 for premium – reserved seating and parking. Tickets are on sale today for Encore Club members — the top annual donors of the Center — and to other members May 1. Tickets will be available to the general public May 15.

For more information or to purchase tickets, contact the Center at 530-274-8384, ext. 14, or online at www.
