Each week of the summer, Southern Village will host a music series on the Village Green on Sundays.
There is no cover charge, and all acts begin at 6:00pm.
This week’s musical guest is: Wes Collins: Award-winning singer/songwriter.
Wes Collins is a stunning singer/songwriter who is said to sound like Neil Finn, Patty Griffin, and Bruce Cockburn.
Wes Collins picked up the guitar when he was seventeen, and worked at it for ten years or so, playing covers for a living. Around his thirtieth birthday he parked his Takamine under the bed and got a straight job as a buyer for a retail music chain, but dug out the guitars in 2000 determined to hack his own musical path. He hit his forties before writing his first song, mainly because he was scared to write bad ones. The battle’s far from over but now he’s got some great songs to share, inspired by favorites like The Beatles and Patty Griffin.
