Our buddy Joe Fletcher is bringing Nashville to Newport this summer at the Newport Folk Festival and with him are coming some of our favorite musicians and a few of our friends with a line up that calls out some of Nashville’s finest. Lovely ladies Amanda Shires and Shelly Colvin are on the roster as is photographer (and musician) Joshua Black Wilkins and Deer Tick’s John McCauley.

Flat Tire – Joe Fletcher

While I might be lucky enough to make it to Rhode Island this summer one can only hope the showcase turns into something everyone might be able to catch as it rambles through their town.

Joe Fletcher in our Listen to Townes Van Zandt tee available this summer.

Here he is……… one of my favorite country crooners, Gary Stewart.

His song titles read like an autobiography of a man well steeped in marital and personal malaise, like most great country artists, but his is performed with pulsating vibrato. His voice is haunting and the songs foretell his own end.  Titles like: “She’s Acting Single, I’m Drinking Double”, “Single Again”, “Whiskey Trip”, “Cactus And A Rose”. Although seeming morose, they are classic and  songs I can step and sway to alone or in a honky tonk.
