– Justin Townes Earle will appear on Public Radio's A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor this Saturday. On Sunday, Earle appears and performs on HBO's Treme.
A Prairie Home Companion broadcasts live this weekend from New York City's Town Hall. Earle appears along with Broadway actress Kate Beahen and folk singer Heather Masse. Check local listings for airtimes http://prairiehome.publicradio.org/stations/ for air times.
As for Treme, Earle appears on the episode with his dad, Steve Earle Sunday at 10 p.m./9 p.m. central on HBO. Treme is the latest effort from David Simon and Eric Overmyer, collaborators on TV shows like The Wire and Homicide: Life on the Street. Set in post-Katrina New Orleans, Treme looks at ordinary people as they try to rebuild their lives, homes, and culture in the aftermath of the hurricane. The series has had musical guests, including Elvis Costello, Allen Toussaint, Dr. John, Galactic, Kermit Ruffins and the Rebirth Brass Band.
Earle continues his busy period by returning to the studio in mid-May, to make the follow-up to his 2009 record "Midnight at the Movies." Earle also contributed a track, Far From Me, to "Broken Hearts & Dirty Windows: Songs of John Prine," a tribute disc out in late June on Oh Boy.
