In song, Joe Pug is a wizened storyteller, but the folk troubadour has just five years of a music career and two albums under his belt. A working man’s musician in the American tradition, Pug draws comparisons to songwriter demi-gods Dylan and Prine. He left a job as a carpenter in 2008 and has worked hard on the road ever since, building a fervent fan base through grassroots ethics, while cultivating his reputation as a folk music prodigy—all signs of good things still to come.

Friday 4/19 $12, 7pm. The Southern Café and Music Hall, 103 S. First St. 977-5590.
