James McMurtry’s First Concert


According to The Washington Post : “[James McMurtry] creates a novel’s worth of emotion and experience in four minutes of blisteringly stark couplets.”

The legendary troubadour has been writing brilliant novellas set to music for more than twenty five years. Mr. McMurtry’s latest contribution, Complicated Game, his first collection in six years, will be released next February.

Complicated Game promises to be a more personal record: “The lyrical theme is mostly about relationships,” McMurtry says, “It’s also a little about the big old world verses the poor little farmer or fisherman. I never make a conscious decision about what to write about.”
