Seth Walker’s Bluesy Americana at Society Hall
SOCIETY Hall is excited to welcome bluesy Americana artist Seth Walker and his trio on Friday, Feb. 24, at 7 p.m.
Over the last decade, Seth Walker has become recognized as one of the most revered Americana artists in the United States – a three-dimensional talent who combines a gift for melody and lyric alongside a rich, Gospel-drenched, Southern-inflected voice with a true blue knack for getting around on the guitar.
WHEN: Friday, Feb. 24, at 7 p.m.
WHERE: Society Hall, 400 Ross AVe., Alamosa
TICKETS: $20 in advance or $25 at the door. Available at the Green Spot, 711 State Ave. in Alamosa, or online at www.societyhall.org. The concert will also stream live on the Society Hall Facebook page.
Says Society Hall board member and area musician and producer Don Richmond, “I had the opportunity to see Seth and his trio last fall at the Four Corners Folk Fest, and I have to say it was the coolest and most engaging set of music I’ve seen in a long time – effortless and fluid, cruising through and across stylistic boundaries like they never existed, seemingly focused on one thing – connecting with the people and lifting them up. Don’t miss this guy!”
In 2022, Walker released “I Hope I Know,” his eleventh studio album. Produced by Jano Rix of The Wood Brothers, the collection is a beacon of light, written and recorded during the dark times of the pandemic. Each song burns bright with what fans have come to love about Walker: stylistically diverse influences, pure soul in his delivery, contemplative lyrics, and musical movement both geographic and spiritual.
Currently residing in Asheville after stints living in Nashville, New Orleans and Austin, Walker has used those experiences wisely, soaking up the sounds and absorbing the musical lineage of these varied places. With a bluesman’s respect for roots and tradition, coupled with an appreciation for – and successful melding of – contemporary songwriting, Seth sublimely incorporates a range of styles with warmth and grace.
