Singer-songwriter Rupert Wates plays solo at Brandon Music
BRANDON — Rupert Wates is the quintessential singer-songwriter, and a regular guest at Brandon Music. He’ll bring his acoustic guitar and warm, expressive vocals to the Brandon Music stage on Saturday, April 6.
Wates’ prolific career, spanning more than 25 years, took off in 1994 when he signed a publishing deal with Eaton Music (London) and became a full-time songwriter. A move to the U.S. in 2007 helped to establish him as “a prime figure in American music,” according to the Folk and Acoustic Music Exchange. Wates has released nine solo albums, won over 40 songwriting and performing awards and performed in over 3,500 concerts — averaging 120 per year in every state in the U.S., Canada and Europe.
In December 2018 he finished recording his new CD “Full Circle.”
“This CD is a return to my roots — hence its title,” Wates said. “It’s intended partly as a homage to the artists I grew up listening to — among them Leo Kottke, John Martyn, Joni Mitchell and Nick Drake — who have made me the musician I am today.”
Catch his next concert in Brandon, Saturday, April 6, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20. A pre-concert dinner is available for an extra $25. Reservations are required for dinner and recommended for the show. Venue is BYOB.
