ARTS Pick: David Tewksbury

ARTS Pick: David Tewksbury

Rock poet David Tewksbury has worked the Charlottesville singer-songwriter circuit for years and issued a series of EPs. Now, with the help of longtime DMB collaborator Butch Taylor, he’s pulled together a band for his first full-length album, Sun is Rising. While composing the tracks on acoustic guitar, Tewksbury envisioned more than a solo album. “The band makes [the songs] sound like I heard them in my head when I wrote them,” he says. “I’ve found some great players, who’ve become good friends.”

Friday 5/20$5, 8pm. IX Art Park, 963 Second St. SE. ixartpark.com.
