JOSHUA BLACK WILKINS
Friday, Mar 28 - 8:00 pm, $12.00
Sponsored By WEXT 97.7
Joshua Black Wilkins is an East Nashville based singer/songwriter who moonlights as a photographer - or does he moonlight as a musician? - and going through his work is like a walk through Nashville - icons like Marty Stuart and the late Charlie Louvin; mainstays like Bobby Bare; newer arrivals like Dan Auerbach; comers and goers like Patterson Hood.
His music is clearly a reflection of the world that his photographs inhabit: staunchly American and a bit haunted and decaying. The characters on Wilkins' new album, While You Wait, tend to be tortured like the protagonist of a good noir novel. In "Catch Your Fall," with its sweeping chorus fiddle lines, Wilkins deals with a relationship in which, to borrow a line from his buddy Justin Townes Earle, he seems to know better but just not care. Pitch-perfect lines like "you look better in black and white" and "you look better when you're 3,000 miles away" tell the conflicted love story without ever giving away too much.
THE AMERICAN ROOTS SERIES AT THE LINDA PRESENTS: TIM ERIKSEN AND THE TRIO DE PUMPKINTOWN
Saturday, Mar 29 - 8:00 pm, $18.00
Hosted by songwriter, roots scholar and multi-instrumentalist Michael Eck
Founder of legendary New England folk-punk pioneers Cordelia's Dad, Eriksen is fast becoming a legend on his own. Among his many exploits, Eriksen -- who describes his work as "Hardcore Americana" -- established the world's largest Sacred Harp convention (in nearby Northampton, Mass.); taught students like Sting, Elvis Costello and Nicole Kidman how to sing shape note; and lays claim to the title of being the only musician to have performed with Kurt Cobain and Doc Watson. History never sounded so good.
The American Roots Series at The Linda presents a total of five programs showcasing this intimate and tradition-rich musical phenomenon, and is made possible by the support of the New York Council on The Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
