Willie Watson

Book Now

A folk singer in the classic sense, Willie Watson is a storyteller and traveller, making modern folk music that is rooted in tradition.

A former member of The Old Crow Medicine Show, he breathes new life into songs made famous by Leadbelly, Reverend Gary Davis, Furry Lewis and Bascom Lamar Lunsford.

With a quick vibrato and rich range, he’s a balladeer on Gallows Pole and a bluesman on When My Baby Left Me. Dry Bones finds him crooning and hollering over a bouncing banjo while Take This Hammer closes on a repentant Gospel note, with Watson singing out to the heavens.
