Folk fan?

Sure this is late notice but, what the heck, I’m new around here! David Wilcox is performing two shows this week, Thursday and Friday evenings, at the Barns of Wolf Trap, with special guest Ric Hordinski.

Dave has been a favorite of mine since I heard him open for Art Garfunkel in the summer of 2000. Since then I have purchased all 12 of his albums and zero of Art’s. It’s safe to say that if you enjoy James Taylor you’ll enjoy Wilcox. Not familiar? Take a listen to some of the clips on his site and let me know what you think.

Coming Thursday night? See you there!

    Yeah, I saw David for the first time (but long time listener) on my 30th birthday in March at the Birchmere. ‘East Asheville Hardware’ is my overall favorite album (really encompasses how his live shows are), but my favorite song is ‘Advertising Man’… I don’t think James Taylor is too far off, but I think David is a better songwriter (and funnier too!). He’s his own man.

    [trivia: he used to live in Columbia, MD for 8 years while his wife studied accupuncture, they just recently “moved” by retro fitting a Ford Excursion with a bio-diesel engine for towing their home across country]

    One of the unique and most enjoyable things about a David Wilcox performance is the storytelling aspect of it. And, you’re right, he’s very funny!

    It is really hard to compare him to anyone as he has a very individual sound and voice. Absolutely great lyrics and stellar guitar playing abound, always!
