A folk artist for contemporary America, Steve Earle's writing and music has captured the spirit – and the struggle – of his land of contradiction. Singers Andy Maize (Skydiggers), Susie Ungerlieder (Oh Susanna), Tom Wilson (Junkhouse, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings), and Gregory Hoskins perform Earle's music, while celebrated author Michael Ondaatje and actor Rick Roberts read his words. This concert highlights Earle's brilliant storytelling and presents his songs in new arrangements that honour and celebrate his music.
