Acclaimed songwriter brings guitar, harmonic folk to Waynesville’s Wineseller

art wilsonSinger/songwriter Ben Wilson will be featured at the Friday Night Live music series from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, Jan. 11, at the Classic Wineseller in Waynesville.

Wilson has been touring for the last 15 years singing, playing guitar and harmonica. His style has been compared to John Prine, Elvis Costello, Bob Dylan and Todd Snider.

Voted one of Florida’s Top Five Songwriters — with 10 albums, two charted songs and nearly 2,000 live shows under his strings — Wilson recently made Asheville his home and is quickly getting acclimated to the local music scene. When he’s not performing, he spends time as an artist in residence for Asheville City Schools where he teaches students in grades K-8 about songwriting.
