Stanton West and special guest Billy Bronsted
October 1 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Folksinger Stanton West sees the world from the perspective of a six and a half foot tall, left-handed, freckle-faced, red-head. Realizing he would never quite fit the mold, he embraced his uniqueness, picked up a right-handed guitar and started playing it upside-down. This was his first break from creative structures and limitations.
Stanton West songs are rootsy, feel-good, and groove driven. His songs are about hope, having fun, being who you are, and relishing the moment. He is an award-winning songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and world traveling troubadour spreading a message about the importance of family, community, nature, and positivity.
He currently resides in the rolling hills & winding rivers of the Driftless Area of Southwest Wisconsin with his family.
Stanton West’s new studio album, Songbird, is produced by David Grisman & Jerry Garcia’s long-time percussionist Joe Craven.
Each song is a chapter in an autobiographical tale of an injured bird who flees the nest, has many adventures amidst friends and foes, and comes home transformed.
This album inspires and reminds us of what is truly important, to follow our dreams, to be fearless when we’re afraid, and to bring out the best in others.
BILLY BRONSTED is a Wausau, WI native who plays in multiple bands in the area including rock band One Strong Army who put out an album last year.
