For the Song and Piper’s Opera House Present: Jamie Lin Wilson

July 27 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Piper's Opera House Exterior

Thank goodness for all the lonely paths that Jamie has had to find that no one else has taken. With a voice that slides in and out of notes with easy grace, a sly sense of humor, and lyrics that highlight the details most of us miss, Jamie creates stark vignettes: intimate conversations between friends who might be lovers and lovers who can’t be friends; kids hopping from stone to stone in a graveyard; the way rolling clouds can signal a new season. She lives and works in that sweet spot where folk and country meet––Guy Clark territory. The For the Song Charitable Fund and its benefactors from the ArrowCreek community are bringing this extraordinary Texas songwriter to Northern Nevada — a stop she simply does not make as she tours nationally and globally. Balancing her family (husband Roy and her four children) with her popularity in major country and folk festivals is the challenge that has introduced her to so many different perspectives. “It’s unfair that the poets and songwriters are the ones who have the songs about their lives when maybe that’s not what’s poetic,” Jamie says. “Maybe the moments are the ones happening in everyday farmers’ lives, or to a widow, or a son.” It’s her comfort in and commitment to two distinct worlds––that of the dream-chasing artists and the dirt-under-their-nails realists––that makes Jamie and her songs not just inviting, but cathartically important.
