JCA presents Bart Budwig with special guest Graham Farrow Knibb for an evening of Folk / Cosmic Country / Backslidin’ Gospel
Bart BudwigBart Budwig is a son of Idaho, a cosmic country crooner, a rousing trumpet player, and cryin’-style soul singer. His music is made up of seemingly incongruous parts; thrum & strum country rhythms, jazz guitar melodies, R&B vocals. When Bart sings he draws out words into meditative mantras, whole note neologisms that keep you hanging on until his raspy voice trails off in a ragged edge.
“Sometimes when Bart sings, I forget what we’re talking about. I’m sure he knows though. I trust him. He sounds like John Prine, plays like Hoyt Axton, and looks like well… Bart Budwig. He’s a cosmic country lawn gnome. He's a cosmic country lawn anome. He's cherubic, cheer, and an Old soul. Songs spring from the dreams of his noonday naps, and punch the keys of his typewnter above the OK Theater in Enterprise, Oregon. When words won't take, he calls em in with a bugle of his trumpet, or a strum of soothing quitar.”
~Sean Jewell, American Standard Time
“Bart Budwig is one of the most underrated musicians in Oregon.”
~ Oregon Pubic Broadcasting
“Cue up Budwig's melancholy brand of folk-rock n' soul, close your eyes and transport yourself to the Urs well-worn dance floor. It's a trip worn taking.”
