Steve Earle To Headline Benefit At Town Hall


Steve Earle and The Dukes will host a benefit concert at Town Hall in New York City December 14. The concert will raise funds for children diagnosed with Autism as all net proceeds raised by ticket sales will be donated to The McCarton School, which provides year-round individualized instruction to children with Autism, ages 3 to 21.

In addition to Steve Earle and his band, who will be performing in NYC for the first time since the release of Terraplane, the evening will also feature Jackson Browne, Justin Townes Earle and The Mastersons. The event has been dubbed “John Henry’s Friends” in recognition of Steve’s five-year-old son, John Henry, who attends The McCarton School.

“They say never meet your heroes,” said Steve Earle in a statement. “But I’ve known Jackson Browne for a couple of decades now and he’s never once let me down.” About his son, whom Steve will perform with for the first time at the event, Earle added, “Justin Townes Earle has grown up to be a great songwriter, a dynamic performer and the kind of man that doesn’t have to be asked twice to suit up and show up for his little brother.”

Various ticket packages such as the “Ultimate VIP Pass,” which includes an orchestra ticket to the show, access to rehearsals at City Winery and admission to the rehearsal show at City Winery on December 13, access to soundcheck and backstage at Town Hall on the 14th as well as a signed poster by the artists are available via City Winery’s website.
