Joe Purdy  Who Will Be Next? Out Now!

Well it looks like this old hillbilly is going to be opening for Judy Collins and Steven Stills for a few shows in May and June. Might be the fanciest party I’ve snuck into yet 👍🏽 Head to for tickets and the rest of my touring schedule. 📸 here by my good buddy @greggiannukos out of Austin. He’s the coolest slyest fly on the wall I know. Check out his work. See ya soon!

Happy St. Patty‘s Day! Had a big time in Austin, and I just landed in Los Angeles to play a Van Morrison tribute show tonight with my good friends over @thehotelcafe My buddy and amazing bass player @jonnyflaugher put together a helluva lineup and it’s gonna be a helluva show complete with a full band including a bad ass horn section and backup singers. Head on over if you’re in town! #stpatricksday

Long overdue shoutout to @leeoskarharmonicas for the only harps I ever use. Simply the best. So good in fact that I had an entire set stolen even though I’d used them extensively. That’s a bloody good harp, and kind of a gross thief. #donttakemyleeoskars Thanks to @jamiekalikowphotography for the 📸 you’re really good at that sort of thing

Headed west through New Mexico and Arizona with the General in tow. #charliesmallscominghome Meanwhile, check out radio interview and performance @amberrubarth and I did with our friend and incredibly knowledgeable radio host @ianzolitor in Philly. You can stream the Folk Show tonight at 8pm ET at Enjoy!

Thanks to DC and Philly for a great couple of nights! On to Boston this evening @brighton_music 📸 by @deb_mul

We had a helluva time playing some wonderful sold out shows on the west coast. Here’s a 📸 from the beautiful @thetripledoor in Seattle (thank you @bjj1978) We’ll be in Washington DC tonight at the Hamilton theater having our own State of the Union where we actually tell the truth. #presidentialburn See ya soon

Happy New Year all,, it’s good to be in California again. We’ll be starting our tour later this week in support of the “American Folk” movie and soundtrack. Yes, I was in a movie. Somebody actually let that happen. Get over it. Scroll through to see what’s coming up! FYI- the Grammy museum date is a screening of the film with a Q&A and short performance by @amberrubarth and I afterwards. The Hotel Cafe date is a post premiere party, with some performances as well, gonna be fun. The rest of the dates are regular concert dates until Cayamo (the boat) and Folk Alliance in KC.
Tickets @ Thanks to my friend @bluegaborphoto for this sneaky 📸 of the sky and I. See ya soon!

This is going to be one hell of a night. So proud to be a part of it. All the profits for this show are being donated to one of Tom's favorite charities @themidnightmission If you can't make the show please check them out and see how you can support, they've been making a difference in their community for a very long time. Special thanks to @carybrothers who has done an amazing job of putting this together and wrangling all of us flaky ass musicians. Happy Halloween vibes wherever you are, and stay safe! #happyhalloween🎃

There's nothing that could block out the sadness of today. But hiking up above the rio grande this afternoon did help in staying calm. I felt blessed to have happened across a such a place, that reminded me that there's still so much quiet and beauty in this world regardless of the madness that continues to plague it. And just as much beauty in its people. Tonight specifically, my heart goes out to the people of Las Vegas, Puerto Rico, and Tom Petty lovers everywhere. There will be better days. #lasvegas #puertorico🇵🇷 #riptompetty

Tour was amazing. Had our last show in Santa Fe the other night, got to celebrate with some dear friends, see the town, and stay at the incredible @elreyinn for a few days #bigtime (thank you Jeff Burns). Special shout out to my new bff @amyvachal for opening the shows and being such a joyful traveling are one of a kind Tito! Love you! #helluvarun Now I'm off to find the quiet 👍🏽
