PORCH Stage

Tré Burt

Sat, Oct 1 |  Porch Stage  |  4:35 - 5:20pm

Rolling Stone said of Tré Burt’s debut album, Caught It From the Rye, released in 2020 on John Prine’s Oh Boy Records: “Tré Burt blazes his own troubadour path, a powerful and moving debut from a singer poised to become a folk festival mainstay for years to come.” His single “Under the Devil’s Knee,” a song that continues the tradition of outspoken political folk songwriters of yore, traces the lives of George Floyd, Eric Garner, and Breonna Taylor. His sophomore album, You, Yeah, You, and his 2022 EP, Know Your Demons, showcase his ongoing development as an artist; like his label mate and songwriting hero Prine, Burt has a poet’s eye for detail, a surgeon’s sense of narrative precision, and a folk singer’s natural knack for a timeless melody.
