A full house of Santa Barbara fans shared a lucky St. Patrick’s Day treat—a double bill of music featuring acclaimed performers Rickie Lee Jones and Madeleine Peyroux at the Arlington Theatre.

Peyroux opened the night, displaying impressive jazz guitar chops and well-trained vocals. When I lived in San Francisco ten years ago, Peyroux’s albums were a staple of tastemaker radio station KFOG 104.5 FM. It happened to be a foggy evening in Santa Barbara, and hearing her bluesy vocals fit right in. She performed with her trio, including an upright bassist and guitarist. Featuring songs from her newest album, Secular Hymns, the trio often sang in a lovely, seemingly effortless three-part harmony.
