Ray Wylie Hubbard

July 8
7 p.m.
Americana, Country, Folk, Singer-Songwriter

Best known for his outlaw-country anthem “Up Against the Wall, Redneck Mother,” memorably recorded by pal Jerry Jeff Walker in 1973, Ray Wylie Hubbard has spent subsequent decades as an ornery Texas troubadour, sagebrush philosopher, weaver of dusty trail tales, and rowdy honky-tonker. Hubbard’s gnarly drawl slithers charismatically around wizened country, blues, and stinging rock on his current Tell The Devil I’m Gettin’ There As Fast As I Can, which also includes a tribute to Twin Cities icons Koerner, Ray and Glover, “Spider, Snaker and Little Sun.”
