Fri., May 17, Susie Glaze & the Hilonesome Band
Palms Playhouse, 8 p.m., $20
Originally from Tennessee, Susie Glaze's roots are firmly situated in the Grand Ole Opry. She's influenced by the Carter Family, Bill Monroe, Doc Watson and Jean Ritchie. Since 2003, Glaze has led the Hilonesome Band featuring Rob Carlson, who writes songs like “Blue Eyed Darlin',” that sound like they originated from a much earlier time. The quintet released White Swan in March, and its 11 songs highlight the band's ability to fuse various roots- and folk-music genres. It also includes Celtic-inspired and reinterpreted covers of songs by Steve Earle and others. Opening this show is 2009 Kerrville New Folk Award-winner, Ernest Troost. 13 Main Street in Winters, http://susieglaze.com.
