Steve Earle and The Dukes
Three-time GRAMMY Award recipient and 14-time GRAMMY nominee Steve Earle is a cornerstone artist of Americana music. One of the most acclaimed singer-songwriters of his generation, he has released 16 albums and his songs have been recorded by such music legends as Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris, Carl Perkins, Waylon Jennings, Vince Gill, and Joan Baez. He has created such country classics as “When You Fall in Love,” “Guitar Town,” “Goodbye’s All We’ve Got Left,” “A Far Cry From You,” and “Nowhere Road.” Always musically adventurous, Earle has crafted folk, blues, rock, country, rockabilly, and bluegrass recordings. His diverse collaborators have included such notables as The Pogues, Lucinda Williams, Patti Smith, The Fairfield Four, The Indigo Girls, Chris Hillman, Sheryl Crow, and Shawn Colvin. He is a longtime social and political activist whose causes have included the abolition of the death penalty and the removal of the Confederate symbol from the Mississippi State flag.
At this year’s Ramblin Man Fair Steve Earle will be performing with his band, The Dukes, as they deliver a truly special Copperhead Road led set, plus hits and some choice cuts from 2017’s So You Wannabe an Outlaw.
A true Renaissance man, Earle has also become a novelist, a film, TV, and stage actor, playwright, author, record producer, and radio host over the course of his 30+ year career. Earlier this year, he appeared in the off-Broadway play Samara, for which Earle also wrote the score that The New York Times called “exquisitely subliminal.” He is also in the process of writing his memoirs for future publication. Tune in to Steve Earle’s weekly radio show Hardcore Troubadour on SiriusXM’s Outlaw Country Channel.
