Alex Culbreth at The Brick Café — Woody Guthrie Folk Festival

Alex Culbreth (II)

The Show

Making his Woody Guthrie Folk Festival debut[1] this past July, Alex Culbreth (Parlor Soldiers, Alex Culbreth and the Dead Country Stars) played a solo set in the basement of the Brick Street Café. Standing with the heels of his western boots over a pair of kickpedals, the Fredericksburg, Virginia native kept time with a small bass drum while he performed his gritty country and blues set. Fans of The Band, Drive-By Truckers, and The Civil Wars would do well to check his tour schedule for upcoming shows; he is currently touring the southeastern United States.

In a recent video interview, Culbreth stated that he drew inspiration from Tom Waits and Townes Van Zandt in his songwriting. His new album with the Dead Country Stars, Heart in a Mason Jar, recently reached #10 in the Euro Americana chart, receiving many favorable reviews.

About the Featured Photograph(s)


M-mount lenses do not provide aperture information to the camera body, either electronically or mechanically. Therefore, f-stop settings are approximate, and are probably wildly inaccurate. For what it’s worth, I usually shoot with my lenses wide open.
