Suzanne Santo opens the show
For nearly two decades, Willie Watson has made modern folk music rooted in older traditions. He’s a folksinger in the classic sense: a singer, storyteller, and traveller, with a catalog of songs that bridge the gap between the past and present. On his most recent album, “Folksinger Vol. 2,” he acts as a modern interpreter of older songs, passing along his own version of the music that came long before him.
Southern gospel. Railroad songs. Delta blues. Irish fiddle tunes. Appalachian music. He does it all, singing songs from the folk canon originally popularized by legends including Lead Belly, Reverend Gary Davis, Furry Lewis, and Bascom Lamar Lunsford.
With the Old Crow Medicine Show, Watson helped jumpstart the 21st century folk revival. Now, as a solo artist, Watson sounds even more commanding, more confident, and more connected to the music that inspires him.
