Road-tested troubadour. Relentless songwriter. Greg Klyma is keeping the American folk tradition alive with his enduring themes, articulate and amusing stories, and populist ideals. He rolls in off the road, pulls out a guitar, and proceeds to take us back to the basics: family, love, gratitude, and laughter.
Greg recently released his 3rd (yes, THIRD) album of 2019. He’s stopping in Murphysboro as part of the C&W 2020 tour. “C&W” — it stands (naturally) for “Coffee and Weed” — is the album’s sardonic opening track. A touching and funny old-fashioned country and western collection, it’s full of twangy slide guitar, winkingly sad stories, and no shortage of memorable women, from the imperious “Davidson County Beauty Queen” who “could have any man she wants in Tennessee” to the “Superstar” who “likes singin’ alone in her car.”
We’re excited to welcome Greg back to the Cousin Andy’s stage, this time in Murphysboro at Redbud Hill, and look forward to hearing the songs from “C&W,” as well as the songs from his other two 2019 releases — “Maybe the Ocean” and “Fake Songs.”
