Joe Pug

Mile Marker: Joe Pug

We've had Joe Pug on our Mile Marker "wish list" ever since we launched the series this past January. Pug, the one-time Chicago carpenter who now hangs his hat in Austin, is one of our favorite traditional folk artists on the circuit today.

While Jack's Mannequin played a cover of Tom Petty's "American Girl" on Main Stage West, Reverb caught up with Illinois singer-songwriter Joe Pug, who played the first set of the day on the Firstbank stage at noon.
