Master songwriter Steve Earle and The Dukes with their new blues album perform at The Ridgefield Playhouse on July 16
Steve_Earle_-_photocredit_Ted_Baron.jpg
Steve Earle has been described as having mastered and making the most of his voice – a voice weathered by hard touring over the decades. It should come as no surprise that nearly 30 years into his distinguished recording career, Steve Earle has made a blues record. With the new album Terraplane, the Americana songwriter supreme and his longtime band (Kelly Looney, Will Rigby, Chris Masterson and Eleanor Whitmore) have delivered a compact, 37-minute bluesy growler that drags us through the dirt and enlightens us at the same time. “He sounds raw, ragged and real, backed by a band whose time on the road hasn’t worn away a looseness that seems to suit these new tunes,” Rolling Stone writer Andrew Leahey writes of Steve Earle and The Dukes sixteenth studio album, “Terraplane” (released February 2015).

OPINION: Why are our children playing on toxic playgrounds and athletic fields?
Why is it when PCBs are found in a school, the school is closed while they remove it? No one says - we know it is a carcinogen but we do not know whether the children will be exposed at a level that will harm them. Instead, the carcinogen is removed before the children return.
