ABOUT WILLIE STRATTON:
Willie Stratton is a force to be reckoned with. Conjuring up a whirlwind of early jazz, blues, and folk styles, the stomping troubadour comes to the stage with a banjo in one hand and a guitar in the other and channels the spirits of long dead old timers like Dock Boggs, Charley Patton, and Fats Waller to name a few; bringing with him technical prowess and musical whit of a bygone era.
