Earle will turn in a princely show
JUSTIN Townes Earle could fill a tent at Bluesfest but the shire's music lovers are lucky enough to have the chance to hear him in the intimate setting of the Byron Community Centre on Sunday, February 17.
He will be on stage alone, allowing him to demonstrate the impressive breadth of his musical lexicon - from folk, country, blues and soul.
A Southern boy, who grew up in South Nashville with the music of Memphis in his ears, Earle told the BSN he believed that "kids growing up in an area like this have a better source" of musical history to draw from than their peers in the north.
His last album was a superb reflection of all his influences, and will be showcased in Byron, along with new material.
Earle is also performing on Saturday, February 16 at the Star Court Theatre in Lismore.
