New classic folk music from a veteran songwriter
Please review The Ark’s current COVID-related information before attending a show.
From his home state of Arkansas to his home in Los Angeles, Joe Purdy has recorded 14 albums. His songs have turned up on numerous TV shows and film soundtracks, and he appeared in the film “American Folk.” In recent years, however, the singer, songwriter, and self-described “hillbilly” has firmly planted his feet deep in the tradition of folk artists such as Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, and Phil Ochs, applying his unique skills as writer and vocalist as a passionate observer and participant of our times. His latest album is the Western-themed “Coyote,” featuring such Purdy originals as “Heartbreak in the Key of Roger Miller.”
