Concert #819 - Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams at McCabe's Guitar Shop (February16, 2018)

This is a brief write-up on a concert that I attended in February 2018.

What attracted me to attend was primarily Larry Campbell's well-known string wizardry and his impressive resume. On the other hand, I knew precious little about Teresa Williams, Larry's wife.

Larry & Teresa, an exceptionally likeable couple, put on a show that exceeded my expectations. Their set list consisted of songs from their 2015 self-titled album, as well as a few covers of songs recorded by musicians such as Doc & Merle Watson, the Louvin Brothers, Carl Perkins, and somewhat surprisingly, soul singer William Bell. Switching from one stringed instrument to another, Larry did live up to his reputation as a virtuoso. And yes, he can sing, too, and so can Teresa and when they were not singing, they shared with us a number of captivating stories from their musical careers.

For their encore, Larry and Teresa returned to the stage with Jackson Browne, with whom they sang the often-heard "Long Black Veil". It was great and so was the entire evening.

The concert was a sellout and there was no opening act.
