Country roots maverick Steve Earle and The Dukes return to the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall. Their performance on Friday, August 20, 2021 is at full capacity.
Steve Earle is one of the most acclaimed singer-songwriters of his generation. He’s a worthy heir to Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, his two supreme musical mentors. Over the course of twenty studio albums, Earle has distinguished himself as a master storyteller. A vast array of artists have recorded his songs. They include Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez, Emmylou Harris, the Pretenders and more
Earle’s 1986 debut album, “Guitar Town”, is regarded as a classic of the Americana genre. And, subsequent releases like “The Revolution Starts…Now” (2004), “Washington Square Serenade” (2007), and “TOWNES” (2009) have all received Grammy Awards.
When asked what drove him to craft his deeply evocative new album, “Ghosts of West Virginia”, he said that he was interested in exploring a new approach to his songwriting. As anyone as politically attuned as Earle understands, there are times when the faithful need music that will raise their spirits and toughen their resolve. But he came to believe that our times might also benefit from something that addresses a different audience, songs written from a point of view that he is particularly capable of rendering.
