Radio Kansas Arts Calendar

Robert Earl Keen
Date: December 6, 2013, 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Venue: Stiefel Theatre - 151 S. Santa Fe Salina, KS 67401
Sponsor: Stiefel Theatre

The Event:      It’s not always easy to sum up a career, let alone a life’s ambition, so succinctly, but those five words from Robert Earl Keen’s calling-card anthem just about do it. You can complete the lyric with the next five words, the ones routinely shouted back at Keen by thousands of fans a night ("and the party never ends!") just to punctuate the point with a flourish, but it’s the part about the journey that gets right to the heart of what makes Keen tick. Some people take up a life of playing music with the goal of someday reaching a destination of fame and fortune; but from the get-go, Keen just wanted to write and sing his own songs, and to keep writing and singing them for as long as possible. "I always thought that I wanted to play music, and I always knew that you had to get some recognition in order to continue to play music," Keen says. "But I never thought of it in terms of getting to be a big star. I thought of it in terms of having a really, really good career and writing some good songs, and getting onstage and having a really good time."
