Pick a Folk Winner

Stacey Earle is Steve Earle’s sister, and mines a similar vein of folk, roots, country, and blues. With her musical partner and husband Mark Stuart, she explores the highways and byways of rural America, peering into the souls of ordinary working people, turning their joys and sorrows into finely wrought tunes brimming over with understanding and optimism, even when the subject matter is bleak. They’re both fine pickers, while their harmonies echo country music’s oldest traditions. At the Freight & Salvage Wednesday, April 18. 8 p.m., $18.50. TheFreight.org (j. poet)
