Master songwriter Steve Earle and The Dukes with their new blues album perform at The Ridgefield Playhouse on July 16
Steve_Earle_-_photocredit_Ted_Baron.jpg
Steve Earle has been described as having mastered and making the most of his voice – a voice weathered by hard touring over the decades. It should come as no surprise that nearly 30 years into his distinguished recording career, Steve Earle has made a blues record. With the new album Terraplane, the Americana songwriter supreme and his longtime band (Kelly Looney, Will Rigby, Chris Masterson and Eleanor Whitmore) have delivered a compact, 37-minute bluesy growler that drags us through the dirt and enlightens us at the same time. “He sounds raw, ragged and real, backed by a band whose time on the road hasn’t worn away a looseness that seems to suit these new tunes,” Rolling Stone writer Andrew Leahey writes of Steve Earle and The Dukes sixteenth studio album, “Terraplane” (released February 2015).

LEON_RUSSELL_JUNE_3_2015_STRAW_HAT_photo_credit_Julian_Konwinski.jpg
Leon Russell has been called a rock and roll Renaissance man, and indeed there is little that this Oklahoma-bred singer-pianist hasn’t done. From leading the famous Joe Cocker's “Mad Dogs & Englishmen” tour, to performing with George Harrison and Friends at the Concert For Bangladesh, to his best-selling 2010 collaboration with Elton John, this Rock and Roll Hall of Famer has given us 50 years of rich musical legacy. Leon’s songwriting credits include “Tight Rope”, “Delta Lady”, “Hummingbird”, “Lady Blue”, “Back To The Island”, “This Masquerade” and “A Song For You”, which is Russell’s best known song and one of the greatest love songs ever written. Russell has shared studios and stages with members of the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and others. Leon Russell is returning to The Ridgefield Playhouse on Wednesday, June 3, at 8 p.m. Special guest is Jamie McLean Band, who bring a raw energy to their music, which is described by ontapblog as “… rock laced with a blues undertone and with an unexpectedly strong country flavor.” Steak House Cellar Door (439 Main Street, Ridgefield) will pour a complimentary glass of wine with dinner the night of this event when tickets are presented. An AllShows.com VIP Party Pass ($25 addt'l per person), which includes a pre-show cocktail party 6:30 – 7:15 p.m. with open bar, hors-d’oeuvre and priority parking, is available for this show which is part of the Xfinity Rock Series with media sponsor i95fm The Home of Rock ‘n’ Roll.
