Earle & Stuart in concert April 17 in Cambridge

Sunday, April 17, from 6 to 8 p.m., Stacey Earle and Mark  Stuart  will be appearing at the Isanti County Historical Society. They are internationally famous performing artists whose unique style and creativity have captured the hearts of hundreds of thousands.

Stacey got her start singing with her brother, Steve Earle. She caught the bug, ran home, and started writing songs.

Stacey and Mark met at tryouts and from that night to the present, have been in love and making music around the globe.

They got their biggest break when they toured with Joan Baez  on her 60th birthday tour. Joan fell in love with the two. Singers and celebrities everywhere love their music and Sheryl Crow even sings backup on one of the five albums.

Stacey’s unique songs, many autobiographical, are hard to categorize, though her haunting voice has been described as a rough-hewn blend of Emmylou Harris and Nanci Griffith.

Together with Mark, her partner in life and music, they’ve put together a collection of some very light and delightful ballads reminiscent of 60s folk and today’s alternative country; but again, they refuse to be categorized.

Stacy and Mark perform well over 200 small venue concerts yearly and they were among the first to volunteer to do shows after 9/11 at Ground Zero for the first responders.

Tickets are $7.95 in advance or $10 at the door. You can purchase them at Cafe Caffeine or online at www.mnwp.org/live where you will receive one free mp3 of Stacey and Mark’s collection.
