Nashville star Will Kimbrough at WTA’s Gateway

Will KimbroughWTA’s Gateway is reaching out to the capital of country music for the final September show. Americana Music Association’s Instrumentalist of the Year, Will Kimbrough will bring a special acoustic performance to WTA’s Gateway, voted Best Music Venue in the Valley by the readers of the News Virginian and Virginia Living.  The Sunday, September 29 performance is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to hear one of the Nashville’s favorite performers in the welcoming intimacy of WTA’s Gateway.

“We are only able to present this great artist because of his personal relationship with the sponsors of the performance, Dave and Julie Connolly,” said Clair Myers WTA’s Executive Director.  “Without them, none of us would be able enjoy Kimbrough’s music in the gracious setting of the Gateway.”

The Kimbrough’s performance is at 7 pm at 329 West Main in Downtown Waynesboro. Seating is limited.

Will Kimbrough is a performer’s performer.  A singer, songwriter, award-winning guitarist, multi-instrumentalist, producer, performer and bandleader, he has a voracious appetite for every aspect of music. Born and raised in the deep south of the Alabama Gulf Coast, he ingested eclectic FM radio sounds and the music of nearby New Orleans. In his quest to develop his musical capacities to their fullest, Will Kimbrough has become a modern-day Renaissance Man.  His body of work reflects the intricacies of folk, blues, gospel, country, rock’n’roll, punk rock and jazz.  After earning his graduate degree on the club circuit, he moved to Nashville with his first band – Will and the Bushmen – and was quickly signed to a major label record deal.   Kimbrough was recognized in 2004 as the Instrumentalist of the Year by the Americana Music Association

In 2007, he released EP.  All Music Guide wrote, “Wonderfully written and executed songs: sparse yet full of literacy, emotion and a primitive’s attitude to modern invention, though there is nothing remotely primitive about the sound or craft on this short set.”  Kimbrough spent much of 2009 working with DADDY, a band he co-founded with Tommy Womack. The lead track on the DADDY album – Nobody From Nowhere – struck a chord with Jimmy Buffett who ended up recording the song and then tapped Will Kimbrough for three songs on Buffet Hotel.

Tickets for the Kimbrough concert are $12 in advance and $15 at the door.  They can be purchased online at www.wtagateway.com or by calling 540-943-9999.  Doors open at 6:30pm, one-half hour before the 7 pm performance.
