Americana troubadour Justin Townes Earle is releasing his latest record, Absent Fathers, in January. It’s a companion LP to his September record Single Mothers, and in support of the new collection, Earle is going on a winter tour that brings him through our area twice. He’ll hit up Arden Gild Hall in Arden Delaware on February 26th, and then will play the Strand Capitol Performing Arts Center in York on February 27th; Gill Landry opens both shows. Tickets and more information can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar. This fall, Earle played a World Cafe Session while on tour through Philadelphia; listen to the session here and watch a video for “My Baby Drives” below.
