There are many sides to Melissa Etheridge. Mother, gay activist, Academy and Grammy award winner, breast cancer survivor, champion of the environment, rocker. It is the rocker who we will experience as she headlines the final day of TBB 2013. But in her close-to-the-heart, confessional lyrics, we will hear her story with all of its beauty, heartbreak, triumph and hope. A prolific, critically-acclaimed songwriter, Etheridge is touring in support of her 12th record 4th Street Feeling, a musical look back at her Leavenworth, Kansas roots. A killer guitarist, she plays all the guitar parts on the new record and the songs display all the deep confidence and wisdom of someone who has lived her life to its fullest.
