Joe Ely

When: Sat., Dec. 21, 7 p.m. 2019

Joe Ely got his start as part of the visionary Lubbock folk trio The Flatlanders in the 1970s. From there, he grew famous in his own right, bringing his blend of Tex-Mex, honky-tonk and rock ’n’ roll from the Panhandle to the world. Now in his 70s, Ely makes a stop at Sam’s to pick through a catalogue half a century thick.
