We’ve added Steve Earle & The Dukes to the line-up on Sunday, June 23- on our first of two shows during FestivALL Charleston. Earle just released Guy, a tribute to the legendary songwriter Guy Clark, who made many appearances on Mountain Stage. They were on the show together in August of 1996 when Earle made his first appearance. Earle is one of our favorite performers and songwriters, so we couldn’t wait to invite him back, especially since he’s paying tribute to another of our favorite performers and songwriters.
Already announced for June 23 are Damien Jurado and Vanessa Peters. Tickets are available online and locally at Taylor Books in Downtown, Charleston.
