Webb Wilder

Nashville Scene Critic's Pick …

Webb Wilder’s roots wend through fertile musical soil that stretches from his native Mississippi to his longtime adopted hometown Nashville and on through California surf music, Memphis R&B, Big Apple noir and the calderas of Venus. Along the way nine albums have blossomed, pollinated by his twangy musical veracity, bighearted humor and crafty yarn spinning. Lately the self-proclaimed “Last of the Full Grown Men,” pioneer of the ’80s roots-rock revival, and lo-fi filmmaker has been recharging his creative batteries with a boatload of projects and appearances — co-writing with fellow dirt diggers Patrick Sweany and Mark Winchester, MC-ing an Americana Music Association night with Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen, prepping for the release of a new for-real vinyl 45 in the fall, and scorching the earth at Knoxville’s Scruffy City Ramble festival. Wilder’s orbit brings him back to Music City this weekend for two varied shows: an appearance with his band the Beatnecks this Friday, and a Sunday all-ages duo concert outdoors at Blakemore Avenue’s “Dragon Park.”
