Master songwriter Steve Earle and The Dukes with their new blues album perform at The Ridgefield Playhouse on July 16
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.
