On the way to Lawrence: Patty Griffin

Updated: 2013-11-12T20:35:22Z

After releasing two albums this year, Patty Griffin has plenty of music to take on the road. Today, she announced her College Tour 2014, which will stop at the Bottleneck in Lawrence on Jan. 25, a Saturday. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday. Price: $21.

In May, Griffin released “American Kid,” her seventh studio album. She wrote 10 of its 12 songs; most of them were written while she was dealing with the illness and death of her father. She co-wrote one with Robert Plant; the other is a Lefty Frizzell cover.

In October, Griffin released a remixed version of “Silver Bell,” which she recorded in 2000 but never released. It includes “Truth No. 2” and “Top of the World,” both of which the Dixie Chicks recorded for their “Home” album.

The opener for the Bottleneck show is folk singer/songwriter Anais Mitchell. It’s an all-ages show. The College Tour also stops at the Blue Note in Columbia on Feb. 6. | Timothy Finn, The Star
