RIP Justin Townes Earle

Recommended Posts

Such a great loss that will surely deprive the world of a lot of great music that would've come from him. I believe I only saw him perform once - at Jazz Fest in NOLA about 11 years ago. He played on a small stage and delivered the goods on that particular day. A few years ago I was asked to organize a small music festival for a friend in the Mississippi Delta. The caveat was that there was no budget. I researched artists who had some interest in or connect with the artist whose memory was the focus of the event, and JTE came up somehow. I sent a Hail Mary e-mail to his people, and although I received a very quick "no" it was probably the nicest and most interested "no" I got in the process. The festival never happened, but I'll always appreciate the tone of the response I received from the JTE camp. Godspeed.
