About Dale Watson & His Lone Stars with special guests: 50 Years of ‘Folsom Prison Blues’
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Succinctly synopsised by the Austin Chronicle, as a “silver-pompadoured, baritone-beltin', Lone Star beer-drinkin', honky-tonk hellraiser” and as “Austin's answer to Johnny Cash”, old-school country diehard Dale Watson first preached his truth in ‘Nashville Rash’ (his reaction to Music City’s’s mainstream), from 1995 debut album Cheatin’ Heart Attack. “I’m too country now for country,” he rued, “Just like Johnny Cash”. Between an annual 300-odd days on the road, invoking the timeless spirit of honky-tonk, outlaw country, rockabilly and Texan swing, Watson’s prolific subsequent output includes a triple album of trucking songs, and when free he hosts Sunday shows at his own Big T Roadhouse, featuring interval games of ‘chicken-s*** bingo’ (Google it...)
He’ll be serving the same straight-no-chaser musical moonshine right here, with his gutsy, gritty, yet super-slick Lone Stars trio, plus some very special guests, celebrating 50 years – almost to the day - since the actual Man in Black’s fabled gig at California’s Folsom Prison.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Dale Watson & His Lone Stars with special guests: 50 Years of ‘Folsom Prison Blues’ are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
