Folkie Will Stratton is releasing a new LP, The Changing Wilderness, this week. We speak with him about his music, love of alternate tunings, and economic justice for musicians.
The upstate New York-based guitarist talks about his newest album, his intricate guitar technique, and the need to write music in tumultuous times.
He started out as a too-young folk prodigy, and evolved into an immaculate songsmith, before a severe cancer diagnosis left him fighting for his life. Now, Will Stratton is back in good health, but also with a new album reflecting his experience, Gray Lodge Wisdom, which is already one of the year's absolute best.
