"An Evening of Story & Song" with Rupert Wates
London-born singer/songwriter Rupert Wates has won more than 40 songwriting and performing awards since coming to the US in 2006. His music, reflected on nine solo CDs, is an eclectic mix of acoustic, melodic art/folk, with flavors of jazz, vaudeville and cabaret. Wates averages 120 live shows every year in acoustic venues in every state in America, in Canada and in Europe. He performs sometimes alone, sometimes with his trio or his quartet. He prefers smaller listening rooms (like Story & Song) where the audience is up close and the emphasis is on the music. Despite Wates' British background, and underpinning the universality of his music's appeal, Folk And Acoustic Music Exchange has called him "a prime figure in American music.'' Audiences everywhere respond to Wates' brand of melodic art/folkhaunting songs that ring true.
