Doors open at 6 p.m., with Sisters High School Americana, Jazz Choir and Jazz Band students performing, complimentary delights served by Sisters High School Culinary Arts students and a silent auction. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. with the two musical legends sharing the stage for a performance showcasing their songs and the stories and inspirations behind them.

Lovett and Hiatt have toured together on and off in this duo format since the late 1980s, alternating performances of their music with entertaining, humorous and witty dialogue between songs. As one reviewer recently described, the audience often feels like they are "eavesdropping on an intimate conversation between two great friends."

A vocalist, songwriter and actor, Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums over three decades. His rich and eclectic style blends elements of country, jazz, folk, gospel and blues and his performances mark him as one of today's most infectious and fascinating musicians.

John Hiatt, whom the Los Angeles Times calls one of the most "astute singer-songwriters of the last 40 years" has released 23 studio albums. All showcase his talents as a master lyricist and satirical storyteller. His songs have been covered by many artists, including Bob Dylan, Bonnie Raitt, B.B. King, Eric Clapton and Emmylou Harris.

Both Lovett and Hiatt have performed separately at Starry Nights in past years and hoped to return together. Event organizers say that this is a show that has long been in the works.

"Lyle and John let us know years ago that they wanted to come back to Sisters, and we've been in touch since then to find a time in their schedules that would work for everyone involved," said event co-chair Jeri Fouts. "With new dates for them starting in January in the Northwest, they generously offered to kick off their 2019 tour at Starry Nights, and we can't wait to welcome them back!"

Starry Nights events have raised over $1.3 million in net proceeds for the Sisters Schools Foundation since its inception in 1997. Among the artists who have performed in the series are Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Keb' Mo', the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Kenny Loggins, Michael McDonald, Karla Bonoff, Kim Carnes, Rodney Crowell, Lee Ann Womack and Christopher Cross.
