- How the troubadour came to be: he wrote his breakthrough album, Trouble, while working at a shoe factory in Maine
- Then: that album caught on fast, as singles found their way to movies and TV and Ray found his way to major stages such as Austin City Limits and the Bonnaroo Music Festival
- Title of his third album, which won a Grammy for “Best Contemporary Folk Album” and ensured Ray never had to return to the shoe factory: God Willin’ & the Creek Don’t Rise
- The album’s appeal: poetic and self-effacing lyrics; a voice akin to Cat Stevens
- What’s new for Ray: his loose and playful fifth studio album, Supernova
- What gives it some extra stomp: production from the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach
- Reason to get there early: for the elegant harmonies of opening act The Belle Brigade
- Interesting fact about the sibling singing duo: their grandfather is famed composer John Williams
Toyota Oakdale Theatre
Once the site of an alfalfa field, the original Oakdale sprang up during the theater-in-the-round craze of the 1950s. Its spinning stage drew stars such as Harry Belafonte, The Who, and Led Zeppelin, who all serenaded the open-air crowds of the ‘60s. In 1997, the Oakdale Theatre was made over into its current, 4,600-seat arrangement, which has ushered in a new generation of entertainment stars ranging from Barney to Britney.
For those who prefer standing up and shaking it during live concerts, the adjoining concert space known as The Dome mixes the comfort of a suburban theater with the energy of a downtown club as revelers revel beneath its wooden steeple.
