An evening with Willie Watson with support Kate Rhudy
May 8th- Willie Watson-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 Folksinger Vol. 2, Willie's latest record, 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. Nodding to the past without resurrecting it, Willie Watson turns Folksinger Vol. 2 into something much more than an interpretation of older songs. The album carries on the spirit of a time nearly forgotten. It taps into the rich core of roots music. It furthers the legacy of American folk. Voices in the Valley is proud to welcome Willie Watson back for what is sure to be a great night of music.Joining Willie Watson to open the night is Kate Rhudy- "Rock N’ Roll Ain’t For Me, Produced by Mandolin Orange’s Andrew Marlin, 2017’s debut from Raleigh singer-songwriter Kate Rhudy, reinterprets well-worn folk with a new vibrancy. “I’ve always written letters to people, and then never sent them.” Rock N’ Roll Ain’t For Me is the collection of those letters, journal entries— they’re stories shared with the honesty and authority.
