Academy Award nominee and two-time Emmy Award winner Mare Winningham, currently making her New York stage debut in the Patty Griffin-Keith Bunin musical 10 Million Miles, will bring a country-folk flavor to Joe's Pub June 17.

The 9:30 PM appearance at the venue in The Public Theater marks her New York nightclub debut. Known for "St. Elmo's Fire" and "Georgia," in which she played a legendary folk singer, Winningham and her music have been compared to Alison Kraus and Emmylou Harris. She has appeared on stage, screen, and in over 60 movies for television.

As a singer and musician, Winningham has also toured across the country. At Joe's Pub, she "will perform an eclectic mix of traditional country bluegrass music" as well as selections from her newly released third studio album "Refuge Rock Sublime," a recording of "original Jewish country/folk songs with a unique take on traditional Jewish themes." Her other albums include "What Might Be" (1992) and "Lonesomers" (1998).

Atlantic Theater Company's world premiere musical 10 Million Miles features music and lyrics by Grammy Award-nominated singer/songwriter Patty Griffin, a book by Keith Bunin (The Credeaux Canvas) and direction by Tony Award nominee Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening).

Mare Winningham's Joe's Pub concert is produced by Jayson Raitt.
