Self-styled Jewish cowboy Kinky Friedman formed his first band, King Arthur & the Carrots, in the 1960s, but it was his second group, Kinky Friedman & the Texas Jewboys, that really saw him cement his style. Blessed with an acerbic wit as well as a genuine gift for tapping into the human psyche when mining for lyrics, we should all be grateful to Willie Nelson for persuading Friedman to return to songwriting after a 40-year break. 2016’s Resurrection EP completed the comeback, and this year’s new Circus of Life seals the deal. Kinky Friedman is well and truly back, and these current shows should be special. Michael Simmons completes the bill. Also Saturday, April 22, at the Echo.
