Bio

Willy Evans' musical vision puts a bluesy spin on roots music -- over a 30-year career, his singing, songwriting and guitar stylings have generated three albums and a loyal following that spans the globe. As leader of the Willy Evans Trio, he's performed around the Southeast for over a decade, playing his own material as well as covers with a unique spin.

A native of rural North Carolina, Willy grew up during the '50s and '60s exposed to country music by his father, folk and classical by his mother and, of course, rock 'n' roll by his peers. He has performed music onstage since grade school -- church choirs, high-school, college and adult choral groups, garage bands, folk groups, blues bands and solo acts have all been a part of his performing life. After college, Willy settled into the blues and played harp and sang in several Chicago-style bands.

With blues at the heart of his sound, Willy extends its range into country, folk and jazz, with a soulful groove
