An acoustic night with Steve Earle

Country music star Steve Earle will be playing a night of acoustic music in Golden

Steve Earle will be playing a show at the Golden Civic Centre on June 11.

The rumours have been confirmed and the news is now out. Steve Earle is set to play at the Golden Civic Centre on June 11. Tickets will go on sale at the Art Gallery of Golden on April 27.

Earle is on tour and is set to release Townes, his highly anticipated follow up to the Grammy Award winning album Washington Square Serenade, on May 12th.

The 15-song set is comprised of songs written by Earle’s friend and mentor, the late singer-songwriter, Townes Van Zandt.

The album was produced by Earle but has many different people from different aspects of the musical world helping out.

The track “Lungs,” was produced and mixed by the Dust Brothers’ John King and features Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine/The Nightwatchman/Street Sweeper Social Club on electric guitar.

Earle’s wife, the acclaimed singer-songwriter Allison Moorer, is featured on backing vocals on “Loretta” and “To Live Is To Fly.”

Three songs cut in Nashville, “White Freightliner Blues,” “Delta Momma Blues,” and “Don’t Take It Too Bad” feature a bluegrass band consisting of Dennis Crouch, Tim O’Brien, Darrel Scott and Shad Cobb.

Earle is a storyteller who has had his songs recorded by Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, Waylon Jennings, Travis Tritt, The Pretenders, Joan Baez and countless others.

In 1986 Earle released his debut record, Guitar Town, which shot to number one of the country charts.

What has followed is an exciting array of twelve releases which have included the hard rock of Copperhead Road, the politically charged Jerusalem and the Grammy Award winning albums The Revolution Starts…Now and Washington Square Serenade.
