The Jesse Williams Band @ Caledonia Lounge

Caledonia Lounge, Athens, GA

A man armed only with a banjo and a bass drum can be a formidable force, especially if his name is William Elliott Whitmore. With his powerful voice and honest approach, Whitmore comes from the land. Whitmore has consistently carved his own path, honoring the longstanding tradition of folk music throughout his nearly 20-year career, while always allowing his blues, soul, and punk rock influences to shine through.

Raye Zaragoza is an award-winning singer, songwriter, and performer whose multinational heritage (Native American (O’odham), Mexican, Taiwanese and Japanese) deeply informs her music.

Jesse Williams of The Jesse Williams Band is a musician of many different roots of blues infused into a sound that is unforgettable.  It is a sound that captures the ear, a sound that keeps an avid listener captivated. It is one that draws the listener back..time and time again.

The Jesse Williams Band along with Raye Zaragoza open for William Elliott Whitmore at The Caledonia Lounge in Athens. Doors at 8pm. $12 ADV Tickets. 18+
