Turnpike Troubadours are a virtuosic band of country-rock road dogs lead by vocalist, guitarist and principal songwriter Evan Felker and backed by fiddler Kyle Nix, steel and electric guitarist Ryan Engleman, bassist RC Edwards, drummer Gabe Pearson, and steel and accordion player Hank Early. The Troubadours deliver punch after punch of smart rock-and-roll that sells out huge venues throughout the Midwest and South and packs legendary haunts like the Troubadour in Los Angeles. With their highly anticipated fourth album A Long Way from Your Heart released in October 2017, the sextet is poised for even bigger breakthroughs ... like touring the US and Canada with Miranda Lambert and Little Big Town this summer on The Bandwagon Tour.
The band’s impressive musicianship is multifaceted: fun with time signatures via lapses into double or half time; clean, abrupt stops; stealthy fingerpicking; unassailable grooves. Felker’s warm vocals invite both closer listening and dancing––a tricky mix that he exudes naturally. Unconventional mash-ups work for Felker, who shrugs off attempts to label what he does. “I find art in a lot of places,” he says. “I find things that aren’t considered art in a lot of people’s views of the world, artful.”
Don’t miss these folk rockers with a Red Dirt mentality when they make a stop in Harrisburg this summer amidst their tour with Miranda Lambert and Little Big Town!
