The Saturday of Presidents’ Weekend should be a blast at Club Helsinki in “Upstate’s Downtown” Hudson, where Steve Earle will be belting out some of his signature rockabilly, alt-country, and anti-war tunes. Garnering inspiration from musicians such as Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, many of Steve Earle’s songs have been recorded by country superstars including Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, and Joan Baez. After a brief hiatus in the early ‘90s, Earle came back strong with an album that returned to more of his folksy acoustic roots. This tour will be in support of his latest album Townes, comprising songs written by Earle’s mentor, the late great singer-songwriter Townes Van Zandt. Come on out to spend an evening with this triple Grammy-winning legend, who is kind enough to make the trip to our neck of the woods for a performance.
The show will be starting at 9 PM, with the doors opening at 6:00. Come early if you can, and be sure to enjoy a tasty dinner of slow-cooked southern cuisine served up in the restaurant right inside the club! Tickets for this event cost $55 in advance/$60 at the door. Visit Helsinki Hudson for information on how to purchase tickets or to make dinner reservations.
For those fans who are or will be in New York City throughout the month of February, Steve Earle will be performing four all request shows every Wednesday night of the month at the City Winery!
