Acclaimed singer-songwriter Tracy Bonham coming to Hey Nonny

With two Grammy nominations, a Rolling Stone Top 50 album, a Gold Record across multiple continents, and tours with Page and Plant, Aerosmith, Bonnie Raitt and more, singer-songwriter Tracy Bonham has had a stellar career. And up next, she’s headed to Hey Nonny, where local music fans can get a taste of her talent at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 29.

“Tracy Bonham has achieved critical acclaim at every step of her career,” said Chip Brooks, who co-owns the Arlington Heights music venue and bistro. “She has built a catalog of seven albums and two EPs featuring complex yet very accessible pop music.”

A classically trained violinist/pianist and a self-taught guitarist, Bonham is best known for her 1996 hit song called “Mother Mother.” Her debut album, “The Burdens of Being Upright,” achieved Gold Record status in the U.S., Australia and Canada. Since then, she has continued to challenge herself and her audiences with sophisticated songwriting and intimate performances.

“She recently performed with the Eugene, Oregon, Ballet and is working on developing a music education platform,” Brooks said. “Tracy Bonham is deeply invested in her music and this promises to be a memorable performance for the Hey Nonny audience.”
