The Words and Music of Steve Earle

A folk artist for contemporary America, Steve Earle's writing and music has captured the spirit - and the struggle - of this great land of contradiction.  Singers Andy Maize (of Skydiggers), Susie Ungerlieder (of Oh Susanna), Tom Wilson (Junkhouse, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings), and Gregory Hoskins will perform Earle's music, and Michael Ondaatje & Rick Roberts will read his words.  This concert highlights Earle's brilliant storytelling and presents his songs in new arrangements that honour and celebrate his music.
