Three-time Grammy winner Steve Earle and the Dukes are set to perform in El Dorado come March 16.
In a news release, the Murphy Arts District announced the concert planned for the Griffin Music Hall, describing Earle as “a cornerstone artist of Americana music.”
Earle’s songs have been recorded by music legends such as Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris, Carl Perkins, Waylon Jennings, Vince Gill and Joan Baez. He has created such country successes as “When You Fall in Love,” “Guitar Town,” “Goodbye’s All We’ve Got Left,” “A Far Cry From You” and “Nowhere Road.” During his four-decade career, Earle has also become a novelist, a film, TV and stage actor, a playwright, a short-story author, a record producer and a radio host.
Earle’s musically adventurous style has led to his diverse collaborators with such notables as The Pogues, Lucinda Williams, Patti Smith, The Fairfield Four, The Indigo Girls, Chris Hillman, Sheryl Crow and Shawn Colvin.
Earle is expected to play his critically acclaimed album, “Copperhead Road,” in it’s entirety. A second set is expected to feature songs from his new album, “So You Wannabe an Outlaw,” and other favorites.
