Robert Earl Keen has built a reputation as one of the nation’s finest musical storytellers. A true “songwriter’s songwriter”, Robert Earl Keen brings compelling and timeless Americana to Jackson Hole with songs from his 16th album, Ready for Confetti. His toe-tapping rhythms, biting sarcasm, and vivid musical portraits combine to create an enjoyable evening of dancing and music.
Deadstring Brothers deliver a menacing sound that draws equally on the melancholy of country ballads and the abandon of rock and blues. The bands music is deeply rooted in the storytelling and instrumental traditions of Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, and the American Outlaw Movement, but is also informed by the song structure and understated aggression commonly associated with Detroit bands. Deadstring Brothers live performances have the energy of guitar rock, but sophisticated arrangements, Hammond Organ and a focus on traditional American music separate them from many of their Detroit contemporaries.
Robert Earl Keen storytelling at its finest!
