In a time when Americana has been muddled by modern influences, both Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen have maintained their sound. Over the years, these two singer-songwriters have used an eclectic mix of traditional country and folk combined with unconventional lyrics to gather a devoted cult following. Both Lovett and Keen have no shortage of fans in the Mobile Bay area, and their local following will not want to miss this special night of music.
This performance will feature Lovett and Keen sharing the stage, with the two taking turns playing their individual songs. As one performs, the other will add his vocal or guitar talents to the song. In addition, the crowd can expect plenty of onstage banter from these two charming singer-songwriters.
Considering the duo’s extensive individual catalogs, the crowd won’t know what to expect. However, Lovett’s and Keen’s past performances at the Saenger guarantee an unforgettable evening.
