Justin's last show a few years ago was one of our fastest selling ever, so do not wait to buy! Will sell out. And Joshua Hedley, the great voice and country stylings of this long time sideman, just back from his debit at Newport Folk Fest, makes the bill even more attractive.
Since launching his recording career a decade ago, Justin Townes Earle has established a reputation as a singular leading light in the Americana music community. With fearless, personally charged lyrical insight and infectious melodic craftsmanship, the young veteran singer-songwriter has built a rich, personally charged body of work.
Now, on his seventh album (and New West debut) Kids in the Street, Justin Townes Earle raises the creative and personal stakes to deliver a deeply soulful set that's both emotionally riveting and effortlessly uplifting. Taking himself out of his creative comfort zone and assembling a new set of collaborators, Earle has created one of his most potent efforts to date, reflecting all manner of new influences upon his life and his art.
"Life has changed a lot for me in the last few years," Earle reflects. "I got married and am getting ready to become a father, and this is the first record that I've written since I've been married. There's definitely an uplifting aspect to this record in a lot of ways, because I'm feeling pretty positive.

Arden Concert Gild proudly presents Ought with special guests! Tickets on sale now. Special guests are to be announced soon.
Ought's 2014 debut More Than Any Other Day brought the Montreal quartet sudden and universal critical acclaim - including high praise from Drowned in Sound, Exclaim, Rolling Stone, NME, and a Best New Music nod from Pitchfork. They have been riding a wave of furious productivity ever since, spending much of the past year on the road - where their channeling of passion, politics and charisma consistently connects with and galvanizes each and every audience.
Based in Montreal, Ought are a thrilling and adventurous quartet, delivering an earnest and exuberant post-punk: dexterous and exacting while bursting with propulsive and fluid energy, as indebted to Cap'n Jazz as to Talking Heads. The band shifts adeptly from sharp angles and stuttering counterpoint to softer edges and chiming flow, the instrumental interplay consistently whipsmart, supple and deceptively simple. Guitarist and vocalist Tim Darcy's declarative, observational style ranges from stately, composed oratory to ragged, impassioned yelp, by turns wide-eyed and worried, but never submitting to cool irony or emotional detachment.
Also coming to Arden Gild Hall this fall!
Expect a special PR later this week on our 110th Arden Fair which is September 2!
NOTE: David Bromberg Quintet (now with Jon and SloMo of John Train opening) is SOLD OUT!

In concert including a reading and discussion from her new book, What I Found In A Thousand Towns. The book includes extended sections on the nearby town of Wilmington, Delaware! (VIP includes a signed hardcover copy and a prime reserved seat).
Dar Williams has been called "one of America's very best singer-songwriters" by The New Yorker. She's released ten studio albums and authored four books including her latest, "What I Found In A Thousand Towns," to be released in September.
Known as much for her staunch progressive ideals as her raw acoustic energy, Williams has been captivating audiences with her sheer elegance and honesty in her folk-pop songwriting since the '90s. Williams' growth as an individual over her two-decade-long career has gone hand-in-hand with her evolution as an artist, touring along the way with such distinguished peers as Joan Baez, Patty Griffin, Ani DiFranco, Loudon Wainwright III and Shawn Colvin among others.
