An entertaining evening of original songs and stories with local songwriter Drew Willson. Featuring Richmond-based musicians and friends Jim Bennett (St. John's and Richmond Hill) on piano and Kevin Davis (Ban Caribe) on percussion.
For ten years, Drew Willson has been a minister in the United Methodist Church. He's currently serving at Trinity in the West End.
For much longer, Drew has been a musician. From places like the Eastern Shore of Virginia to Atlanta, Georgia and Iona, Scotland, he has followed the muse to write and wrestle with all he has seen. Songwriting is the place where it all comes together.
Despite his day job, Drew tends to surprise listeners with the content of his songs. People, places, and humor abound without a lot of church talk. To quote a recent first-time concertgoer in Fluvanna, "I figured this was going to be religious music, but it was great!" Drew replied, "You know, I want to keep this interesting for myself, too!"
In the spring of 2018, Drew worked with Jim and Kevin to record and release a new album entitled Ritual Matters, the follow-up to Drew's 2016 debut Inviting Storms to Town.
Drew lives in Richmond with his wife, writer Shea Tuttle, and their two children.
