Duane Betts goes acoustic on “Colors Fade”

Duane Betts has unveiled an acoustic duo version of “Colors Fade,” a track originally presented with a full band on his debut album, Wild & Precious Life, which was released in July 2023.

“Johnny Stachela and I recorded this in the study of my dad’s (Dickey Betts) house as he listened down the hall while we played,” says Betts. “For that reason alone, it’s a very special memory. I think you can hear the magic we were both feeling as we were performing the song.”

Duane Betts & Palmetto Motel will embark on a comprehensive U.S. tour starting June 28 in Sioux Falls, SD. This tour includes several dates where they’ll be supporting Little Feat during the summer and fall. Betts and his band will also headline their own shows, with performances at venues like Levon Helm Studios in Woodstock, NY, Iron Horse Music Hall in Northampton, MA, and Portland House of Music in Portland, ME. They are also set to appear at festivals such as Bourbon & Beyond and Backroads Blues Festival. Over Labor Day weekend, Betts will host his own Horseshoe Music Festival in Jackson, WY. Additionally, Betts and Johnny Stachela are slated to join the Tedeschi Trucks Band as supporting acts in Providence this fall.
