7:00 PM–8:30 PM
Cleveland-born David Wilcox is a father, husband, citizen, and songwriter. First inspired to play guitar after hearing a fellow college student playing in a stairwell, Wilcox is now eighteen records into a career, marked by personal revelation and wildly loyal fans. His lyrical insight is matched by a smooth baritone voice, virtuosic guitar chops, and creative open tunings, giving him a range and tenderness rare in folk music.
Wilcox released an independent album in 1987, was a winner of the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk award in 1988, and by 1989, he had signed with A&M Records. His first release on the label, How Did You Find Me Here, sold over 100,000 copies the first year, largely by word of mouth.
