The Musikfest Café presented by Yuengling welcomes three-time GRAMMY winner Steve Earle & the Dukes April 5, 7:30 p.m. for a show celebrating the 30th anniversary of Earle’s acclaimed “Copperhead Road” album. Hailed as one of the greatest singer-songwriters of the past four decades, Earle is a master of country, rock, blues and rockabilly. A definitive Americana artist, he is best known for hits like “Copperhead Road” and “Hillbilly Highway” and is also the host of “Hardcore Troubadour” for the SiriusXM Radio Outlaw Country Channel. Earle’s most recent album, “So You Wannabe an Outlaw,” was released in 2017. The recording is an homage to outlaw music including a range of gentle, acoustic folk ballads as well as pile-driving, country-rock roots sounds. Tickets for his show are $39.75-$54.75.

On April 18, 7:30 p.m., in the Musikfest Café, legendary drummer Carl Palmer will present a night of nonstop hits from Emerson, Lake & Palmer. With the recent passing of both his ELP bandmates, Keith Emerson and Greg Lake, Palmer hits the road with a tribute show in their honor. ELP’s megahits including “Pictures at an Exhibition,” “Lucky Man,” “From the Beginning” and “Tarkus” helped define progressive rock and earned sales of 48 million. His new band captures all the power of these hits in a hard-driving, instrumental performance that’s winning raves globally. Known as “a drummer’s drummer,” Palmer has also performed as part of Asia, Atomic Rooster and The Crazy World of Arthur Brown. Tickets are $26-$33.

Celebrating its 25th anniversary, Carbon Leaf blends rock, folk, Celtic, bluegrass and Americana traditions into a high-energy style the group calls “ether-electrified porch music.” The quintet’s poetic songs are brought to life with acoustic and electric guitars, mandolin, fiddle, bass, drums, cello, banjo, penny whistle, pedal steel, accordion and rich vocal harmony. Carbon Leaf writes, records and produces its music from its studio in Richmond, Va. and has performed more than 2,400 lives shows across 17 albums in its long career. The group’s independent music and spirit continue to resonate with its fans. Tickets for the show, which takes place May 10, 7:30 p.m., at the Musikfest Café, are $25-$30.

TUSK: The Ultimate Fleetwood Mac Tribute takes the stage at the Musikfest Café Nov. 23 & 24, 7:30 p.m. Named after Fleetwood Mac’s 1979 album “TUSK,” this dynamic tribute act features seasoned musicians Kathy Phillips, Scott McDonald, Kim Williams, Randy Artiglere and Tom Nelson recreating Fleetwood Mac classics like “Go Your Own Way,” “Don’t Stop,” The Chain” and more.
