Earle, the sister of Americana rocker Steve Earle, has become a favorite on the folk and country music circuit with performances at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, the Winnepeg Folk Festival, and venues throughout the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. Earle is known for her simple songwriting style and lyrics about love and motherhood. She is touring in support of her most recent CD, Dancin' With Them That Brung Me, the follow-up to her 1999 debut, Simple Gearle. With Stuart, she has recently released the recording Must Be Live. These CDs as well as Stuart's Songs from a Corner Stage are available through their own label, Gearle Records.
The concert is the fourth in the American Roots series, which featured sold out performances by Doc Watson, Norman Blake, and Jay Ungar and Molly Mason. The series concludes on February 22 with Cajun music legends BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet.
