Music in the Gardens: Kelsey Waldon
July 12, 2017 | 7 pm
Kelsey Waldon sings it like she means it. The western Kentucky native doles out tough realizations about heartbreak and cheating, hard luck and lying (and battling back against it all) in a delightful monotone that says she’s seen and lived it all one too many times. “She’s one of the rare young singer-songwriters who takes an interest in old things, old ideas, old people, old notions of right and wrong,” as NPR put it. On 2016’s wryly written I’ve Got a Way, she joined the proud ranks of singers like Chris Stapleton and Kacey Musgraves, performers whose vision for the future of country music goes back to its beginnings and starts again.

"It's the immediacy of her storytelling, utterly unsentimental yet deeply heartfelt, that makes Waldon a queen of the cool rejoinder and an all-round contender."
