Up for an Americana award, too.

Steve Earle will conclude his Washington Square Serenade tour of North America next week at NYC’s
Judson Memorial Church.
Described as an “extremely intimate” venue, it will be a special 4-night
conclusion to an already special tour, and we just got word that a handful of
tickets are still available – go HERE for Earle’s itinerary and ticketing
Judson, incidentally, is a pretty special place for New
Yorkers. Located at 55 Washington
Square South, the church describes itself as “a
little bit different” on its website, www.judson.org:
You’ve found a church that’s a little bit different. It looks like
a high Italian Renaissance church for a reason you might not expect from low
church Baptists. We’re deeply rooted in free church, Baptist and UCC
traditions, but every kind of believer and not-so-much-a believer gathers
together on Sunday mornings. We’ve been Gay Proud long before Gay Pride.
We’re interested in changing the
plight of the marginalized and noticing when the emperors have no clothes. We
think the arts make life worth living and celebrate the secular and sacred in
all that we do, including worship and how we use our glorious spaces.
Meanwhile, Earle will be at the Americana Music Association
awards ceremony tomorrow in Nashville
where he’s up for Artist of the Year. For our prior coverage of Earle, the tour
and the award, go HERE.
