Nelson Wright and Friends: CD Release Show
Nelson Wright came of age in the Northeast, in the shadow of the first great folk scare. Now in the maelstrom of Seattle's exploding acoustic roots thrash, what goes around is coming around, and on his new album he circles his songwriting back to his roots.

His songs tap into the great traditions of indigenous American musicexpressing deep and sophisticated human connections using the simplest words and music. Think of Jimmie Rodgers' TB Blues, John Hurt's Louis Collins, Memphis Slim's Mother Earth, or the Louvin Brothers' Lorene and you'll have an idea of what Nelson's about. His new album Still Burning contains ten original songs that mine this vein, telling stories with a common theme of lovegood, bad, new and old. The album is graced with the support of some of the Northwest's premier roots musicians, including Orville Johnson, Grant Dermody, and Michael Connolly.

Nelson claims to be the only folksinger whose picture is on the Woodstock album and whose inventions are in the Smithsonian. Who knew? Visit Nelson's website at www.nelsonwright.org.
