The Way Down Wanderers will perform a Wisconsin-exclusive stop on its tour through the Midwest Saturday, Aug. 21 at the Thrasher Opera House.
The concert will take place at 7:30 p.m.
“We don’t consider ourselves folk artists or bluegrass players so much as we consider ourselves song-writers,” the band said. “We try to convey ideas and experiences that are universally meaningful to people. To us, the music and instrumentation exists to move those ideas forward and lift them up; we try not to limit ourselves to one genre of music or any specific type of instrumentation because certain songs might call for something else … keys or an electric guitar, for instance.”
Often referred to by fans as one of the hardest-working, hardest-touring bands on the circuit today, the 5-piece Illinois-based act aims to prove that classification on stage every night, with youthful exuberance and a lively stage show.
“There’s really nothing more humbling than discovering that one of our songs meant something in somebody’s life — that it helped them through a tough time or inspired them to do something meaningful that they may have been holding back on,” the band said. “So the goal for us really, is to put more songs out there that inspire people and to play them for a growing and diverse audience.”
