WILLIE WATSON

With guests MY BUBBA

American bluegrass/folk singer-songwriter. Acony Records proudly presents Folksinger Vol. 2, the highly anticipated second solo album from folk artist Willie Watson.  Produced by David Rawlings and recorded on analog tape at Woodland Sound Studios in Nashville, Tennessee, the album features eleven songs unearthed from the canon of American folk music and brought to light by Willie’s remarkable voice and wise beyond his years performances.  Special guest appearances by the Fairfield Four, Gillian Welch, Morgan Jahnig and Paul Kowert round out the arrangements on this stunning sophomore collection.

Looking like a man from leaner and meaner times, Willie Watson steps on stage with a quiet gravitas. But, when he opens his mouth and lets out that high lonesome vocal, you can hear him loud and clear. Watson was a founding member of Old Crow Medicine Show.

My Bubba

Sweden's My Larsdotter and Iceland’s Bubba Tomasdottir are sisters linked not by blood but seemingly shared past lives. Together as My Bubba, the two create soulful folk music which is both sultry and refined. Having co-written numbers in the households of household names (Matthew E. White, Noah Georgeson), the duo have found a comfortable place at a table of kindred spirits. Sonically sparse, the songs these women weave are laced with dark humor and clever bite. Sunday morning with the creeping sense of Saturday night's mistakes, black tea with a drop of honey. My Bubba's sound ushers in the heaviness while leaving nothing but room to breathe. This is sensual, unhurried music, with changes that take their time to reveal themselves. Simultaneously strange and familiar, like milk from another planet.
