(((folkYEAH!))) presents: Willie Watson

(((folkYEAH!))) presents an evening with Willie WatsonWillie WatsonFor nearly two decades, Willie Watson has made modern folk music rooted in older traditions. Hes 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 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. Folksinger Vol. 2 makes room for it all. Produced by David Rawlings, the album carries on a rich tradition in folk music: the sharing and swapping of old songs. Long ago, the 11 compositions that appear on Folksinger Vol. 2 were popularized by artists like Leadbelly, Reverend Gary Davis, Furry Lewis, and Bascom Lamar Lunsford. The songs dont actually belong to those artists, though. They dont belong to anyone. Instead, theyre part of the folk canon, passed from generation to generation by singers like Watson. And what a singer he is. With a quick vibrato and rich range, he breathes new life into classic songs like Samson and Delilah, one of several songs featuring harmonies from gospel quartet the Fairfield Four. Hes a balladeer on Gallows Pole, whose melancholy melodies are echoed by the slow swells of a four-piece woodwind ensemble, and a bluesman on When My Baby Left Me, accompanying himself with sparse bursts of slide guitar. Dry Bones finds him crooning and hollering over a bouncing banjo, while Take This Hammer closes the album on a penitent note, with Watson singing to the heavens alongside a congregation of Sunday morning soul singers.Arriving three years after Folksinger Vol. 1 his first release since parting ways with the Old Crow Medicine Show, whose platinum-selling music helped jumpstart the 21st century folk revival Vol. 2 expands Watsons sound while consolidating his strengths. Several singers and sidemen make appearances here, including Gillian Welch, the Punch Brothers Paul Kowert, and Old Crow bandmate Morgan Jahnig. Even so, Watson has never sounded more commanding, more confident, more connected to the music that inspires him.

A native Texan steeped in the states rich country and blues music traditions, Mike draws inspiration from home state heroes of his like Guy Clark and Steve Earle, but his sound is anything but cliche. His lyrical themes deal honestly with all aspects of the human condition while keeping the listener keenly engaged. An outlaw for outlaws, Mikes music transcends the often narrow boundaries set by the mainstream country music establishment.No stranger to the stage, Mike has performed at big name venues, honky-tonks and intimate listening rooms throughout Texas and the western states, building a dedicated following along the way. His debut full length album Trials and Triumphs is expected in the fall of 2021, and he plans to tour extensively to support the release. Construction worker by day and troubadour by night, Mike somehow still makes time for his many other pastimes including cyclocross, surfing, heavy metal and union organizing. He currently resides in Grass Valley.

From Johnny Cash to Tom Waits, Beck to Bonnie Raitt, Ry Cooder to Bruce Springsteen, the Grateful Dead to The Rolling Stones, they all pay homage to Ramblin Jack Elliott. In the tradition of roving troubadours Jack has carried the seeds and pollens of story and song for decades from one place to another, from one generation to the next.
