Pines and Prairies and Bugle Boy Host Benefit Show

Pines and Prairies Land Trust and the Bugle Boy Foundation announce a special concert featuring popular Nashville artists Stacey Earle and Mark Stuart for one show on Friday, October 16.

All proceeds from ticket sales benefit Pines and Prairies Land Trust and the Bugle Boy Foundation, both 501(c)3 public charities. Pines and Prairies Land Trust is a non-profit organization that works to preserve land and wildlife habitat through conservation easements in Fayette, Caldwell, Lee and Bastrop Counties. The Bugle Boy Foundation supports and provides a world-class venue for live performance of original music by independent artists from Texas, the U.S.A., and around the world.

Since meeting in 1992 and marrying in 1993, Earle and Stuart have toured repeatedly all over the U.S., Canada, and Europe, playing 170 shows a year for audiences in small, intimate venues. Fixtures on the Folk/Americana circuit, their heartfelt music spans genres from blues, country, pop, rock, and more.

Stacey and Mark have perfected

the art of live concert over 17 years of making great music together. Mark's flawless guitar reflects many years of stage work since he started playing honky-tonks in and around Nashville at age 15. Before teaming up with Stacey, Mark toured and played lead guitar and vocals for Freddy Fender, and others. Stacey and Mark have both toured and recorded with Stacey's brother Steve Earle's band The Dukes.

For three years, Stacey and Mark have been touring almost non-stop. As they put it "all our kids are grown, so we left town." They bring the complete entertainment package with them, captivating their audience from the moment they take the stage. Their clever acoustic guitar interplay, a u t o b i o g r a p h i c asongwriting,lovelyEverly Brothers-like harmonies, and humorous storytelling will make this a show to remember.

The Bugle Boy is located at 1051 N. Jefferson (U.S. 77N) in La Grange. Highly regarded as one of the finest listening rooms in the country, The Bugle Boy is nonsmoking and serves fine wines, quality beers, great coffee, and milkshakes.
