On Friday, April 3 at 7:30 pm the “Art of Music” winter concert series presents Cory Chisel and the Wandering Sons at the Ladder House Music Room located on Third Avenue in Sturgeon Bay.
Like notable musicians before him, singer-songwriter Cory Chisel forged his first connection to the power of song through the music he heard – and made – in church. His father was a Baptist minister, his mother played piano during services, and an upbringing surrounded by sermons and spirituals instilled in Cory the passion and portent of language and melody.
Based in Appleton, WI with his band, The Wandering Sons, Chisel’s upcoming six song EP, Cabin Ghosts reflects the inspiration of his upbringing with a spare Americana-saturated sound that is its own exquisite blend of folk-country and Delta blues. With his voice full of soul and longing, Chisel’s expressive vocals and the Sons’ loosely orchestrated, impeccable playing emerge fully formed yet somehow familiar and as confident in its sounds as in its lyrical echoes of existential grace and mystery.
Concert tickets are $10. The concert is sponsored by Door County Memorial Hospital/Ministry Health Care. For more information please call 920.493.5979.
