Shooter Jennings brought his raucous brand of outlaw country music to DC on Wednesday, rocking the house at City Winery.
He’s spitting image of his daddy, the legendary Waylon Jennings, right down to the prominent proboscis, albeit carrying a more slender figure. Touring behind his new album, Shooter, he’s picking up the torch his father carried, turning his back on Nashville and Hollywood, making music his way, as he expressed in the song “Solid Country Gold/The Outsider.”

Genre-busting singer-songwriter Joe Ely has released a lot of material — solo and as a member of The Flatlanders and Los Super Seven — since his 1977 self-titled debut album. The legendary guitar slinger will perform with the equally eclectic Alejandro Escovedo at City Winery in DC on Tuesday, Aug. 21.

The National Health Service of the United Kingdom turned 70 years old in July, and Wales called upon native son Mike Peters of The Alarm to perform in a concert to honor the anniversary.
Seated directly in front of Mike in a special chair for the occasion was none other than Charles, Prince of Wales, the singer recalled in a story at City Winery in DC on Wednesday.

Americana singer-songwriter Hayes Carll was in rare form before a sold-out house at DC’s City Winery Saturday evening. Performing mostly solo, with just an acoustic guitar, Hayes had the crowd spellbound, playing favorite songs and freely breaking into story. Hayes’s trademark wry, sarcastic sense of humor was on fine display, as was his heartfelt sincerity.
