Boise and Eilen Jewell are happy to be together again. Since moving back to town in 2012, the folk-country-surf-rockabilly songstress bought a house; had a child with her husband, musician Jason Beek; contributed a song to the Boise 150 compilation album In Our Town (2013); and started her own promotion company, Mess Around Music. Jewell recorded her new album, Sundown Over Ghost Town (Signature Sounds, 2015), which comes out Tuesday, May 26, at Audio Lab Studios.
Before the release of Sundown, a bevy of Boise musicians will pay tribute to the "Queen of the Minor Key" with a night of Jewell covers. The show will be recorded and released on CD, DVD and USB drive. Proceeds will benefit a charity of Jewell's choosing and, at the end of the show, Jewell herself will play a selection of songs from her new record.
