Tramps Like Us – Ep.61 Steve Earle & Bruce Springsteen at Camp Copperhead

I recently spent 4 days and nites singing and songwriting with Steve Earle at Camp Copperhead. Hard core. I attended Steve’s master class songwriting retreat the first year of the camp in 2014 and had a fabulous time returning last month. For this episode, I’ve compiled some audio moments and highlights from Camp Copperhead 2018. I spoke with Steve and my fellow copperheads about music, songwriting and of course, Bruce Springsteen. You’ll hear those conversations, some late nite guitar-pull jams, some pertinent moments from Steve’s lectures, and lotsa great music.  Thanks…
