Nashville born and bred William Tyler‘s 2010 album Behold The Spirit conjured ancient melodies, dead languages and ghosts with a mesmerizing blend of Appalachian drone and ambient noise alongside acoustic and electric guitar work that caused Pitchfork to declare it “arguably the most vital, energized album by an American solo guitarist in a decade or more.” Some may know Tyler from his playing in Lambchop, the Silver Jews, Wooden Wand and with Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy. Impossible Truth (on Merge Records) carries Tyler’s hallmark finger-picking style into beautiful sublimated pop territory, a ’70s singer-songwriter album sans lyrics, that’s informed by ecology, apocalypse and meditation. Two Portland artists, Aleric Nez and Christopher Pulsoni, bring their own lo-fi guitar aesthetics to complete the night.

Due to a performer’s possible Covid-19 exposure and rain in the forecast, the status of the July 25th Steve Gunn and William Tyler show at Greenwood Garden is unclear. We will update all ticket holders and the public on Saturday, July 24th with more information.
