And he’s back!

It’s been six years since Willie Watson played our Australian stages and due to popular demand, we welcome the folksinger, storyteller and troubadour back to our shores.

For over two decades, Willie Watson has made modern folk music rooted in older traditions. Hailing from Watkins Glen in upstate New York, the legendary founding member of Old Crow Medicine Show – one of the most respected bands within the realm of modern Americana – will bring his rucksack of feelgood songs and stories to Meeniyan this October.

From releasing the gem of an album Folk Singer Vol. 1 in 2014 to the follow up, Folk Singer Vol. 2 in 2017, Willie went on to explore the silver screen, playing The Kid in the Coen Brother’s film The Ballad of Buster Scruggs where he sang the Oscar-nominated song When A Cowboy Trades His Spurs for Wings. What a legend.

From his early days with Old Crow Medicine Show, to his current work as a solo artist, Willie is a celebrated musician with a rich vocal range, a top interpreter of the folk canon and a highly skilled multi-instrumentalist. We love him. Go see this show.
