FURTHER LIVE EXPLORATIONS INTO AMERICAN FOLK AND COUNTRY BY BRITISH ICON
Elvis Costello is in the midst of a brief but exciting tour with his new band, The Sugarcanes, which is comprised of heavy hitters Jerry Douglas, Stuart Duncan, Dennis Crouch, Mike Compton, Jeff Taylor, and Jim Lauderdale.
This is the same group that joined him on his Grammy-nominated 2009 album Secret, Profane & Sugarcane (Hear Music). The tour began on Tuesday and continues tonight at the Warner Theatre in Washington, D.C.
