Our Song of the Week comes from the Hardcore Troubadour himself, Steve Earle.
Steve Earle is widely considered to be one of the greatest living songwriters, so it’s a testament to the prowess of the late Guy Clark that Earle pays tribute to the Texas songwriting legend on his latest collection of Clark-penned songs, “Guy.”
In his seventh appearance on Mountain Stage since 1996, Steve Earle & the Dukes perform a set of songs from “Guy,” including our Song of the Week, “Dublin Blues.”
If you watched “There’s A Stream” recently, you heard some new songs from Earle from his album The Ghosts of West Virginia. We had hoped to record a new session with him earlier this year, but we look forward to welcoming him back to Almost Heaven with those songs next Summer.
You can hear the entire set from Steve Earle & the Dukes, plus more live performances from Damien Jurdado, Erika Wennerstrom, Alsarah & the Nubatones and Vanessa Peters, on this week’s broadcast of Mountain Stage with guest host Kathy Mattea.
