Folk Singer Willie Watson On Tour Now
Last Chance To See Willie Before He Heads Out With The Machine

Photographer: Gerard O’Sullivan
Willie Watson is on tour for the next three weeks, the last chance to see him in support of his solo debut album Folk Singer Vol. 1 before he embarks on a world tour with the Dave Rawlings Machine.  Willie’s tour across the eastern US and Midwest includes two intimate shows at Stage 3 of New York City’s Rockwood Music Hall (Sep 26 and 27) , Boot & Saddle in Philadlephia (Sep 29), The Ark in Ann Arbor (Oct 6) and SPACE in Evanston (Oct 7).  For the full itinerary, please see below.
To get a taste for what to expect on the upcoming tour, listen and watch this FrontRow video of Willie Watson performing “James Alley Blues,” which Amazon premiered earlier in the year.
This tour marks the final leg of Willie’s extensive U.S. Tour before he heads out with acclaimed super-group Dave Rawlings Machine as they travel in support of the new album Nashville Obsolete, released on Acony Records on Sep 18th.  Willie appears on several tracks on the new album.  Rob Hughes of Uncut praises “there is so much on Nashville Obsolete that impresses, but what lingers longest is a rare and persuasive ability to tap into the ageless mythos of true American folk.”
FreshGrass called Watson “one of the most dynamic solo artists in Americana,” his solo performances are clearly not to be missed.  Catch Willie at one of the dates listed below.
