Willie DE Band – 2 Dec 2017 @Batesville Market
December 2, 2017 @ 18:30 - 21:00Free
Willie DE, a nationally touring young artist based in Central Virginia, blends folk, blues, and a dash of jazz to create a fresh, original sound. For this show, he’ll be joined by bandmates Randall Pharr on bass and Stuart Gunter on drums.
Willie has shared the stage with and opened for such top-flight musicians as the North Mississippi All-stars, David Olney & Sergio Webb, Ivan & Alyosha, Alash Ensemble, Eric Taylor, and The Hackensaw Boys. His new sophomore album, Thunder Train, benefits from his recent study of jazz guitar as he merges it into the folk-blues style of his original tunes.
