Sunday Nov 2nd @ 8pm Joe Ely Duo with Special Guest, Warren Byrom: Presented by WUKY
Joe Ely Duo with Special Guest, Warren Byrom: Presented by WUKY "He sings of distance, about rivers and ranches, of smoldering passions and sad laments, of faraway longing and unrequited love."

Everybody else romances the road. Joe Ely lives it. Call him what you want - a wandering minstrel, gypsy cowboy, visionary song poet, or houserocker on fire - whatever he is, Ely's covered a lot of ground in his time.
He sings of distance, about rivers and ranches, of smoldering passions and sad laments, of faraway longing and unrequited love. He sings of journeys that take him from the High Plains of West Texas to dark and mysterious flamenco bars in Spanish Andalusia, where Arab, African, and European influences commingle. And more than once he can be seen and heard chasing hearts and souls south across the Rio Grande.
The voice is that of a man who speaks fluently the patois of honky tonks and jook joints, who can hold an audience around a campfire riveted until the break of dawn, or inspire a crowd of thousands to kick up their bootheels in a two-step or a stomp.
The songs that Joe Ely sings are the stuff that make anyone's journey something worth remembering.
by Joe Nick Patoski

After spending the mid 2000's as a working musician in New Orleans, Warren Byrom returned to Lexington, Kentucky to focus on writing and recording. His first full length collection of songs was recorded with Duane Lundy, Otto Helmuth, and Tony Miller. His forthcoming release, produced with Duane Lundy, will be available early 2015...
