On Oct. 1, South By Southeast, the nonprofit music organization in Myrtle Beach will bring Steve Young and Jubal Lee Young to the stage at the historic Myrtle Beach Train Depot.
According to the SxSE website, “Steve Young has followed his own musical quest, blending Southern roots with life’s experiences, and creating Americana music traditions. A boy of the South with roots in Texas, Georgia and Alabama, he was barely out of high school, playing guitar and writing songs in the folk, country and blues stylings of such music icons as Hank Williams, Elvis, and Carl Perkins.
“Steve was an integral part of the movement that spawned and defined the California country-rock sound. Appearing on Steve’s 1969 classic album Rock, Salt & Nails were Gene Clark, Chris Hillman, Bernie Leadon and Gram Parsons – all Flying Burrito Brothers and Byrds members. The most covered Steve Young song is ‘Seven Bridges Road.’ ‘Lonesome, Ornery & Mean’ became a Waylon Jennings signature, and Hank Jr.’s cover of ‘Montgomery in the Rain is classic.
“Jubal Lee first appeared on the South by Southeast scene at a Music Feast a few years back performing with fellow singer/songwriter Justin Townes Earle. Jubal’s smoky baritone rasp invokes the familiar sound of John Lee Hooker, Bob Seger and Hank, Jr. whether he’s playing originals or covers. ‘Jubal Lee Young makes genuine top-class Americana country-rock; melodic, story-telling and attention-seeking. It reminds me of a young Steve Earle.’ – Magnus Sundell.”
South By Southeast is known for bringing these amazing talents to the beach. Another of the organization’s goals is “to provide assistance and support to local music education programs for the young people in our area through instrument drives, scholarships, donations, and other means.”
Music Feasts are $25 per person ($20 for SxSE annual concert series members). Reservations are suggested. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, with the number of tickets and your zip code. They’ll put you on their A list.
