The Arcadian Wild: Buckhead Theatre
Saturday September 30, 2023 08:00 PM EDT
CRITIC’S PICK: The acoustic vibe of this Nashville-based trio is rooted in the approach of their titular region but shifts from folk to Irish traditional, bluegrass, country and even some pop. It’s a lovely, often lively sound that’s organic, rootsy, played and especially sung, with genuine affection for whatever genre they choose. They will highlight songs from a fine, recently released new album, Welcome. — Hal Horowitz
From the venue:Led by songwriters Isaac Horn (guitar) and Lincoln Mick (mandolin), and with the support of Erik Coveney on bass and Bailey Warren on fiddle, The Arcadian Wild confidently inhabits and explores an intersection of genre, blending the traditional with the contemporary in order to create a unique acoustic sound that is simultaneously unified and diverse. With one foot planted firmly in choral and formal vocal music, and the other in progressive folk and bluegrass, the band offers up songs of invitation: calls to come and see, to find refuge and rest, or to journey and wonder.
