Christmas has been part of Robert Earl Keen’s repertoire ever since he released “Merry Christmas From the Family” on his 1994 album Gringo Honeymoon. This year’s Christmas tour, number six for Keen, continues that holiday tradition.
Keen and his band along with the Quebe Sisters will give audiences a festive, variety-show-meets-country revue that will have audiences dancing and laughing all night.
It’s not always easy to succinctly sum up a career — let alone a life’s ambition — but the five words from Robert Earl Keen’s calling-card anthem “The road goes on forever…” just about do it. From his humble beginnings on the Texas folk scene, Keen has blazed a peer, critic and fan-lauded trail that have earned him living-legend status in the Americana music world.
Three decades later, with well over a dozen records to his name and thousands of shows under his belt, there’s still no end in sight to the road ahead.
