When: Fri., Feb. 26, 9 p.m. 2016
Joe Pug writes in an understated style that belies the emotional complexities of his songs. What seem like straightforward ruminations on love, life and family turn profound and moving the deeper you scratch beneath the surface. The beauty and simplicity hark to the rough-hewn blue-collar poetry of Steve Earle, John Hiatt and Nebraska-era Springsteen. Pug plays a solo show at Signal Kitchen in Burlington on Friday, February 26, with Mandolin Orange.
