Rupert Wates

Presented by Granite City Folk Society at First Presbyterian Church

Jul 01, 2022

London-born Rupert Wates has called the US home since 2006, gigging cross-country and writing about us. His songs range from the historical to the topical to the personal, and recently he has been spending some pandemic time working on classical pieces as, he writes, "a means of broadening my musicianship." This could prove to be a very interesting show. "A smidgen of Django, and a little dose of the English music hall leavened with the panache of an expert Continental quartet. Wates is. . . a marvelous lyricist. . . he writes words that sing."  --Steve Klingaman, minor7th.com "Terrific hooks, deep lyrics, awesome voice and nearly astonishing fingerpicking chops--the real deal." --Paul Fried, Monterey County Weekly "Wates performs his own songs, ballads reminiscent of Billy Joel's in their ability to tell stories. His music offers an oral history of troubled times across America through the years." --Melissa Hall, Indy Fringe Reviews Website:  https://rupertwatesmusic.com
