Steve Earle is the godfather of Americana music. With his black vest, jeans, and long gray beard, he’s often said to look like an aging biker. But when I saw him at City Winery on Wednesday, I saw a bit of one of the main characters of one of his favorite novels, a sort of Texas Gandalf the Grey.

“[T]here’s way more pressure when it comes to music, because it’s my passion, it’s what I strive to accomplish in life.” Craig Stickland interview, Portal Magazine (2017)
Despite (or maybe because of) being an artist who also models and acts, Craig Stickland has set his sights on a musical career. Maybe it’s because the endless nights on the road, in cramped vans, waking up in a different place every night is so rewarding… or maybe because music is real. Onstage, you’re only playing yourself.

Hudson Taylor turned DC’s City Winery into a raucous Irish pub complete with hand-clapping, singalongs and rug cutting. Hudson Taylor’s folky (and folksy) but lively Irish pop lends itself well to this type of behavior and certainly brightened a recent weeknight.
