Willi Carlisle

Arkansas
Genre: Folk
Willi Carlisle is the raconteur and folksinger you don’t know about yet. In just two years of touring, The Washington Post has said he is “powerful” and “worth seeking out.” Twin Cities Pioneer calls him “impressive on banjo, accordion, and fiddle.” In Cincinnati, a reviewer said his songs and stories “turn the cliche of solo performance on their head.” With a varied and exuberant program of folksongs, stories, and original stomps and croons, Willi has performed internationally with Grammy-nominated talent like Dom Flemons, Los Texmaniacs, and Mary Gauthier.
