Academy Award winner and singer-songwriter Minnie Driver is performing at the Coach House on Wednesday, Nov. 26.

The popular television and movie actress has found some time away from her schedule to perform shows for her newly released album, “Ask Me to Dance.” The album features similar styles and a new take on some well-known songs by Stevie Wonder, Frank Sinatra, Elliott Smith and many more.

She’ll not only be performing her new material but some songs from her previous albums ”Everything I’ve Got in My Pocket” and “Seastories” with her band of Los Angeles-based musicians, Tired Pony.

“We’ve all known each other for many, many years. They all play with different bands but we come together to make records and tour as much we can,” Driver said. “My band allows me to sing what is more natural for me. I’ve had vocal training when I was younger but that’s nothing when you’re writing songs and singing from your heart.”

Don’t miss Driver’s first ever appearance at the Coach House, 33157 Camino Capistrano in San Juan Capistrano, and be delighted by how well her musicianship matches up to her acclaimed acting talent.

Tickets cost $15. Dinner reservations with priority seating are also available. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show begins at 8 p.m.
