Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Bonnie Raitt brings her Dig in Deep Tour to the St. Augustine Amphitheatre on Oct. 29. Tickets for Raitt with guests The California Honeydrops will go on sale at 10 a.m. April 29.

Raitt has added a string of 14 shows to her 2016 North American Tour in support of her 20th album, “Dig In Deep” (Redwing Records), released Feb. 26. After selling out much of her North American tour to date, Raitt continues her journey across America through November. Raitt is joined by her longtime touring band: James “Hutch” Hutchinson (bass), Ricky Fataar (drums), and George Marinelli (guitar), along with Mike Finnigan (keyboards).

Continuing a long-standing tradition in conjunction with the Guacamole Fund, Raitt will donate $1 from every ticket purchased to grassroots local, regional and national organizations whose work focuses on safe and sustainable energy, social justice and human rights, environmental protection, and blues-music education.

“I’m feeling pretty charged, and the band and I are at the top of our game,” Raitt said. “This period of my life is more exciting and vital than I was expecting, and for that I’m really grateful. At this point, I have a lot less to prove and hey, if you’re not going to dig in deep now, what’s the point?”

The California Honeydrops don’t just play music — they throw parties. Led by dynamic vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Lech Wierzynski, and drawing on diverse musical influences from Bay Area R&B, funk, Southern soul, Delta blues, and New Orleans second-line, the Honeydrops bring vibrant energy and dance-party vibes to their shows.

Tickets for Bonnie Raitt with The California Honeydrops will go on sale at 10 a.m. April 29 at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre and Ponte Vedra Concert Hall box offices. Tickets will also be available at ticketmaster.com, all authorized TicketMaster outlets or by calling 800-745-3000.
