91.9 WFPK presents
VANDAVEER
w/special guest Musikanto
Soaring Folk, Pop, Americana

VANDEEVER, the song-singing, record-making, globetrotting project penned and put forth by alt-folk tunesmith Mark Charles Heidinger, heads back to the Uncle on tour with Oh, Willie, Please, their fifth and "brand new album of very old songs" that debuts on April 30. Born in Ohio, raised in Kentucky, and currently camped out in the nation’s capital, Vandaveer conjures up melodic Americana that is both haunting and easy, forlorn and welcoming, with stories as universal as the songs they inhabit. They shapeshift from stage to studio and back with a host of revolving characters, most prominent among them Rose Guerin, offering up the loveliest harmonies heard this side of Eden. Oh, Willie, Please is inspired by their recent participation in The 78 Project: The band gathered in a majestic old home on a picturesque horse farm in Lexington, Kentucky in the spring of 2012 and set to work re-imagining a collection of age-old murder ballads and songs of self ruin plucked almost entirely from the public domain. With longtime producer Duane Lundy once again at the helm, Vandaveer moved swiftly through the selected catalog, recording most of the tracks live in the manor's great room. as they tapped into the wellspring of traditional folk's darker side. The result is a spacious, honest album that balances reverence and respect for the source material with a healthy coat of contemporary color. Vandaveer “revives the earnestness of the pre-psychedelic 60’s,” says The Washington Post, while XM Cafe has dubbed Mark Charles “this generation’s Nick Drake.”
