Justin Townes Earle

Two special evenings with the exceptional singer and songwriter Justin Townes Earle will include Justin's original songs in the context of the continuing legacy of Woody Guthrie in his centennial celebration year. For an artist whose list of influences runs the gamut from Randy Newman to Woody Guthrie to Bruce Springsteen, categories are useless. Justin, son of a great American troubadour Steve Earle, won the coveted "Song of the Year" award at the Americana Music Awards in 2011, and his latest cd "Nothing's Gonna Change the Way You Feel About Me Now" has garnered critical acclaim. These two exceptional nights will feature special guests invited by Justin including John McCauley of Deer Tick, The Low Anthem, and Joe Pug.
While Woody Guthrie's actual birthday has passed, the Woody 100 festivities continue throughout the year, and here's another one which happens at PACE University's Michael Shimmel Center for the Arts on October 26 and 27. Guests The Low Anthem will appear both nights with Justin Townes Earle, but John McCauley will only play the first night. Tickets to the October 26 show (with McCauley), and tickets to the October 27 show (without McCauley) are on sale now.

In addition to these Woody shows, JTE is on tour and all dates are listed below.

Woody Guthrie in his centennial celebration year. For an artist whose list of influences runs the gamut from Randy Newman to Woody Guthrie to Bruce Springsteen, categories are useless.
