Wolverton Home Concerts Presents: Jason Wilber, Wednesday Sept. 25th
"On your way to The Southwest Regional Folk Alliance 2013 Conference? Or even if you are not, please consider dropping by for an evening in an intimate San Antonio setting with journeyman guitarist, singer, and songwriter, Jason Wilber. Jason has traveled the world as lead guitar player for artists like John Prine, Greg Brown, Iris DeMent, Todd Snider, and Hal Ketchum. In the insightful and sometimes humorous songs featured on his seven solo CDs he manages to meld his rock, folk, jazz, and country influences into a unique sound that’s been described as “Van Morrison meets Wilco”. From Carnegie Hall to Red Rocks to Massey Hall and the London Palladium, Jason’s performed in all 50 States, and all over Canada, Europe, and the UK.
Doors open at 7:30 / Music at 8:30 or so. Seating is limited. Cover is $20 per person --- all of which goes to the artist (as do any album sales). Message us to reserve a seat:

Jason Wilber’s work with John Prine includes the Grammy Award winning CD Fair & Square, and the Grammy nominated CDs Live On Tour and In Spite of Ourselves (which spent 32 weeks on the Billboard Country Charts). John Prine's penchant for duets has put Jason in the enviable position of accompanying him on recordings with Emmylou Harris, Lucinda Williams, Josh Ritter, Patty Loveless, Iris Dement, Trisha Yearwood, and Sara Watkins. Other wonderful artists Jason has worked with live or in the studio include Tim Grimm, Krista Detor, Greg Trooper, Carrie Newcomer, Kim Fox, Bill Wilson, and Over the Rhine.
Recently, Jason co-produced the compilation CD Coal Country Music featuring Willie Nelson, Gillian Welch, Ralph Stanley, Jason and the Scorchers, Kathy Mattea, Justin Townes Earle, Natalie Merchant, Diana Jones, Tom T. Hall, Bonnie Raitt, John Prine, Jean Ritchie, and other artists, who all contributed their talents to benefit the Alliance for Appalachia's work to stop Mountain Top Removal in rural Appalachia.
