Willie Nile

“Willie Nile is clearly possessed by the spirit of rock ‘n’ roll…as he unleashes anthems, pop songs and power ballads…and speaks for the unempowered…a twenty-first century Woody Guthrie.”  - No Depression

As a courtesy to patrons, wine and beer will be served at this performance.

Anyone who’s paid attention to his recent output knows that Willie Nile is currently in the midst of a creative renaissance that’s produced some of the most compelling music of his 35-year career. The tradition continues with his recent album, "American Ride." 

”It’s pretty rockin’ over all, but there are some left turns and right turns along the way,” Nile says of the album, which was fan-funded through Pledgemusic.com. “There are songs about the rights of man, songs about freedom, songs about love and hate, songs about loss, songs about God and the absence of God, and songs about standing up for your fellow man. It’s upbeat and full of life. I’m thrilled with how it came out.”
