A protégé of legendary songwriters Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, Earle quickly became a master storyteller in his own right — his songs have been recorded by Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, Waylon Jennings, The Pretenders, Joan Baez and countless others. The Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter delivers his unique blend of rock, folk and politically charged Texas country with a poetic spirit and cinematic energy.

The music of three time Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter and guitarist Keb’ Mo’s music is a living link to the seminal Delta blues tradition that traveled up the Mississippi River.

His new album “The Reflection” captures his musical spirit and virtuosity in a masterful blending of blues, jazz, R&B and soul.

Like a wayward Santa for the Christmas-obsessed, John Waters will cruise into town with his sleigh full of sticks and stones, spreading yuletide cheer and lunacy in his critically acclaimed one-man show.  The legendary filmmaker (Pink Flamingos, Hairspray, A Dirty Shame, etc), and best-selling author feels “Christmas crazy” this year – “needy, greedy, horny for presents and filled with an unnatural desire to please.”  Waters’ rapid-fire monologue explores and explodes the traditional holiday rituals and traditions.
