Steve Earle will hit Massachusetts next month as part of a series of “solo and acoustic” shows in New England. The veteran singer-songwriter will perform at the Narrows Center for the Arts in Fall River on Monday, November 26. Tickets for the intimate show are available through the venue’s box office and website for $50.

At the solo show, fans can expect a relaxed unplugged show. “I have no set play list, I decide, once I’m out there, what I’m going to play,” explained Earle in a recent interview with the Daily Freeman. “I do take requests and sometimes I play them and sometimes I don’t.”

Earle continues to tour in support of his latest album, 2011’s I’ll Never Get Out of This World Alive. Produced by T-Bone Burnett, the singer’s fourteenth studio album debuted at #24 on the Billboard 200 and #4 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. It was released alongside Earle’s first novel of the same name.

Earlier this summer, Earle announced that he will begin working on a memoir and a second novel. The memoir is expected to be released in the spring of 2014, while the release date for the novel remains unknown. A new album is also expected to be released next spring.

Along with the upcoming show in Massachusetts, Earle will make stops in Connecticut (Infinity Hall in Norfolk on November 28), New Hampshire (Tupelo Music Hall in Londonderry on November 29), Vermont (Jay Peak Resort in Jay on November 30) and Maine (Port City Music Hall in Portland on December 1).
