Joe Purdy looks like an Appalachian mountain man. He stuffs a handkerchief in the back pocket of his workman’s pants, sports a footlong beard, dons a crushed bowler, and rocks a red, white and blue guitar strap.

If he’s going for “Americana," Purdy’s pulling it off to a tee. Late last year,  he released his twelfth album, This American, and has since been touring with folk-duo Milk Carton Kids.
