Webb Wilder @ Forty Acres
On Friday, February 15, singer, songwriter, guitarist, film actor, and humorist Webb Wilder will bring his hot mix of roots rock, Americana, blues and British influence to the Five Oaks stage.
His album It Came from Nashville makes Paste 50 Best list (2/27/2018)
Musically, it echoed any number of precedents - Elvis, Jerry Lee, and Steve Earle. Likewise, rockabilly, cowpunk and country caress were combined in equal measure, making for a rowdy and rousing rave-up.
"With his obvious love of British rock and Southern roadhouse,
Wilder could be a kind of Tom Petty for the trailer set." - San Francisco Chronicle
Webb Wilder is an evangelist for real Rock 'n' Roll. As a singer, guitarist, bandleader, film actor, songwriter and humorist, he may be roots-rock's only true Renaissance man.
"These days the term 'roots rocker' is almost meaningless, but Wilder's blend of a rocker's heart with a hillbilly's soul is probably the best aural definition of it yet." - Time Out Chicago
"Nashville's best country-on-peyote band." - Entertainment Weekly
