KRTS Marfa Public Radio is pleased to present Texas country icon Robert Earl Keen in concert on Saturday, September 27 at The Granada Theatre in Alpine, Texas.

Long-regarded as one of the Lone Star State’s finest (not to mention top-drawing) true singer-songwriters, Keen remains as committed to and inspired by his muse as ever. From humble beginnings on the Texas folk scene, he’s blazed a peer, critic, and fan-lauded trail that’s earned him living-legend and pioneer status in the Americana music world.

With audience-favorite songs like “The Road Goes on Forever” and Big Bend-based tunes like “Gringo Honeymoon” (about Boquillas Crossing), Keen is a perfect fit for a radio station catering to “a wide range.”

“REK is helping us raise much-needed funds to keep public radio growing in Far West Texas. Our listeners love him, KRTS loves him, and we know it will be a tremendous show,” said KRTS General Manager Tom Michael.

Support for this benefit concert comes from Reata Restaurant, Pace & Associates CPAs, LLC, Malcolm and Anne Calaway, David Fannin, Liz Rogers, Joseph and Kelli Calaway, Kenneth Mills, and Kiowa Gallery & Custom Framing.

Tickets are $35 in advance (purchase them in our online store by clicking here) and $40 at the door. All proceeds benefit your public radio station, KRTS. Concert is for ages 21 and up.
