Robert Earl Keen, appearing on Mountain Stage January 20
A quick bit of exciting live show news to pass along, folks.
We’re happy to announce that when Mountain Stage returns to Morgantown
on January 20, we’ll be welcoming Texas
singer and songwriter Robert Earl Keen, and Grammy-winning vocalist Shelby
Lynne. This will mark Lynne’s third appearance on the show, and Keen’s tenth.
Tickets to this show are available now by phone (304.293.SHOW), online,
and in person at the CAC box office in Morganown.
One of the most important and beloved singer-songwriters to
emerge from Texas in the 1980’s, Robert Earl Keen finally earned
commercial success in the late 1990’s with his album Picnic – and also, with
little help from the greatest dysfunctional family portrait ever put to song. His
latest album, Ready for Confetti was
produced by the great Lloyd Maines, and has been called “his most inspired and
focused project in nearly 20 years.”
Shelby Lynne, appearing live on Mountain Stage January 20.
One of the finest singers working in any genre, Shelby
Lynne’s first record deal came not long after an appearance on Ralph
Emory’s Nashville Now in 1987. A chart-climbing duet with George Jones
followed, along with a series of records that touched on everything from
traditional country and slick country pop to western swing. And even though she
won the Best New Artist Grammy in 2001, Lynne has purposefully stood apart from
the mainstream. Her two most recent albums were released on her own EVERSO
records label, including her latest, the self-produced Revelation Road.
Rhett Miller and Black
Prairie will also be there. We hope to see you, too. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the latest. Thanks for
supporting Mountain Stage.
