Folk singer-songwriter David Wilcox’s lyrical insight is matched by a smooth baritone voice, virtuosic guitar chops and creative open tunings, giving him a range and tenderness rare in folk music.

Now, more than twenty albums into a career spanning over three decades of touring extensively around the U.S and world, he continues to deliver joy, inspiration and invention to his legions of fans.

Wilcox will return to The Palms Playhouse, located at 13 Main St. in Winters, on Saturday, Jan. 25 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $25 in advance, $29 at the door, and $12 with student ID.

Wilcox is a quintessential folk singer, telling stories full of heart, humor and hope, substance, searching and style. His innate sense of adventure and authenticity is why critics and colleagues alike have praised not just his artistry, but his humanity as well.

That’s not by accident; it’s very much by design. It’s the result of a man giving himself over in gratitude and service to something bigger than himself.

“I’m grateful to music,” he said. “I have a life that feels deeply good, but when I started playing music, nothing in my life felt that good. I started to write songs because I wanted to find a way to make my life feel as good as I felt when I heard a great song. I don’t think I’d be alive now if it had not been for music.”

According to the Boston Globe, “Fueled by brilliantly articulate guitar, an honestly pretty baritone, and deft lyrics, he combines the best of both pop and modern folk aesthetics,” while Rolling Stone opined, “David Wilcox’s ongoing musical journey is compelling and richly deserving of a listen.”

Wilcox pulled no punches on his most recent release, 2018’s “The View from the Edge.” The song cycle finds him delving into mental health, family legacies, spiritual contemplations and topical concerns. The song “We Make the Way By Walking” won him Grand Prize in the 2018 USA Songwriting Contest. Wilcox also won first prize in the competition’s Folk category.

Tickets are available at Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters, Armadillo Music in Davis, Davids’ Broken Note in Woodland, online via The Palms’ website and Eventbrite, and at the door if the show is not sold out.
