Seattle-bred sisters ANN AND NANCY WILSON are behind some of rock’s most iconic hits from the wild screed of “Barracuda” to the multi-sonic odyssey of “Magic Man” to the madly romantic “Crazy On You.” Nancy’s guitar and Ann’s voice are practically part of the national archive of music, indelible elements of American pop culture. In their nearly 40 years as a band, the Wilson sisters have been lauded as sex symbols, idealized as feminist icons, praised as accomplished musicians and songwriters, and worshiped by critics and fans alike, selling over 35 million albums worldwide and thrilling audiences with the power and passion of their live show. They will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on April 18, 2013, but the sisters have chosen to celebrate with their hometown fans for one very special acoustic concert inside Benaroya Hall. Seattle author CHARLES R. CROSS joins them on stage for an intimate conversation. He is a well-known biographer for rock music luminaries including Jimi Hendrix, Robert Plant, and Kurt Cobain. Cross worked with Ann and Nancy on their new memoir, Kicking & Dreaming: A Story of Heart, Soul and Rock & Roll, which was released on September 18, 2012 and became an instant New York Times best seller.
