Will Hutchinson Updates
Excited to announce the physical release of my new album Wildflower People on Sower Records this December 30th. Orion Walsh is also joining the ranks of Sower the same night with me for his album "7"..
Coming up on November 30th I'll be playing a duo show with my bud Werner Althaus on guitar. We are opening the show at 8pm so make sure you are there by then if you'd like to see us play a half hour set. I checked out Kacy and Clayton's music and its really cool. She has a voice that sounds like a cross between Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez. Looking forward to sharing a night of music with you and them.

HearNebraska, the hub of the Nebraska music community, invited me to do a live performance of "Gypsy" last week and released the video today with the most thoughtful and honest review.

Gone are the days of sockless and pantless wanderings. Fall has arrived in Nebraska and along with it has come thick flannel, intelligent wool, and steaming hot cocoa.
My exciting news to share with you this month is the release of the third music video for Wildflower People, "Wisteria." The video is co-starring Andrea Von Kampen (an excellent singer/songwriter you should check out too), who also sings harmonies on this summer lovin' ballad.

Looking forward to joining six other fantastic Nebraska bands for this free community music festival in a couple weeks! I'll be joined by Stephen Cantarero on upright bass and Werner Althaus on weissenborn and electric guitar. Hope to see you there! More info posted on my facebook page HERE.
