Blues, Folk, & Country

Butch Hancock

When: Sun., May 22, 8 p.m. 2011

Butch Hancock is a member of The Flatlanders, the superstar trio that includes his longtime pals Joe Ely and Jimmie Dale Gilmore. Like his compatriots, Hancock has created an impressive body of work that blends folk, country, rock, and his unique Texas bred outlook into songs that aren't easy to pigeonhole. He prefers to stay outside the mainstream music business, touring and recording only when the spirit moves him. It's been a long time since he's visited the West Coast on his own, so don't miss this chance to see one of America's finest songwriters in action. At the Freight & Salvage (2020 Addison Street, Berkeley) on Sunday, May 22. 8p.m., $20., $22.50. FreightandSalvage.org
