ROBERT EARL KEEN
"The road goes on forever..."
It's not always easy to sum up a career—let alone a life's ambition—so succinctly, but those five words from Robert Earl Keen's calling-card anthem just about do it.
You can complete the lyric with the next five words—the ones routinely shouted back at Keen by thousands of fans a night ("and the party never ends!")—just to punctuate the point with a flourish, but it's the part about the journey that gets right to the heart of what makes Keen tick. Some people take up a life of playing music with the goal of someday reaching a destination of fame and fortune; but from the get-go, Keen just wanted to write and sing his own songs, and to keep writing and singing them for as long as possible.
"I always thought that I wanted to play music, and I always knew that you had to get some recognition in order to continue to play music," Keen says. "But I never thought of it in terms of getting to be a big star. I thought of it in terms of having a really, really good career and writing some good songs, and getting onstage and having a really good time."
Now three decades on from the release of his debut album—with nineteen records to his name, thousands of shows under his belt and still no end in sight to the road ahead—Keen remains as committed to and inspired by his muse as ever.
Eliza Gilkyson is a twice Grammy-nominated (2006/2015) folk singer/songwriter and activist who is one of the most respected musicians in Folk, Roots and Americana circles. The daughter of legendary songwriter Terry Gilkyson, Eliza entered the music world as a teenager, recording demos for her father. Since then she has released 20 recordings of her own, and her songs have been covered by Joan Baez, Bob Geldof, Tom Rush and Rosanne Cash, and have been used in films, PBS specials and on prime-time TV. She has been inducted into the Austin Music Hall of Fame in the company such legends as Willie Nelson, Townes Van Zandt and Nanci Griffith, and is an ongoing winner of the Austin Chronicle's various music awards, as well as Folk Alliance awards for Best Artist, Best Songwriter and Record of the Year.
Her latest album, 2020, is a blend of new and old, reflecting the protests and activism that have defined her generation, including her interpretation of some folk favorites by Bob Dylan, "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall," and Pete Seeger’s "Where Have All the Flowers Gone." Eliza also adapted a new song, "Beach Haven," from a letter written by Woody Guthrie in 1952 to Fred Trump, who at the time was his landlord, regarding his segregationist renter policies. Ever the optimist, Woody pleaded to Trump to "open your doors" and "rip out the strangling red tape" that kept the apartment from embracing all races.
