James McMurtry

March 30. Literate country-folk singer James McMurtry is the son of noted novelist and screenwriter Larry McMurtry (James's mother, an English professor, taught him how to play the guitar). A songwriter of conscience as well as evocative stories and vivid imagery, James is one whose narrative voice is strongly needed in these desperate days and, arguably, Steve Earle's closest contemporary; for proof, take a listen to his excoriating 2005 rumination of the death of the American Dream, "We Can't Make It Here Anymore." The Texas troubadour traipses into Infinity Hall for this intimate evening. (Sarah Jarosz sings March 18; Poco pops in April 1.) 8pm. $30, $45. Norfolk, Connecticut. (866) 666-6306; Infinityhall.com.
