Willie Walker & Paul Metsa "Live on Highway 55" Release Pary @ The Dakota

  • The Dakota Jazz Club & Restaurant 1010 Nicollet Mall Minneapolis, Minnesota 55403 USA (map)

Join Willie & Paul as they celebrate the release of their first recording "Live on Highway 55."  A batch of songs that have been etched into the collective consciousness as seminal hits, and then diminished by overexposure and karaoke indignity; and cover art that evokes the nostalgia of getting kicks on Route 66.  On this new release, Metsa and Walker alchemize these elements into an entirely fresh and joyful musical road trip.  It's just Willie's voice and Paul's guitar, great songs and a bounty of inspiration and soul - the result is the rediscovery of two rich talents and a tribute to the depth of a semi-modern chapter in the American songbook.  Tickets are only $10 and are available thru the Dakota's website or at the door.
