Please review The Ark’s current COVID-related information before attending a show.
Gonzograss stalwart Keller Williams brings back his “Shut the Folk Up and Listen” series with one of his favorite folk gurus, Steve Poltz. As Keller said in 2016 when he kicked off this seated evening of song and stories concept with Leo Kottke and again in 2018 with Martin Sexton, “I take great pride in the evolution of my career. Between all the electronic toys and all the eclectic people that allow me into their worlds, this set goes back to the beginning. Guitar and microphone. Loopless. I focus on material that can be enjoyed while sitting and listening. Not necessarily slow songs but instrumentals and lyrics that are often overlooked when performed in venues with no seats. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy those venues and look forward to hopefully playing them for the rest of my life. This set focuses on the listening rather than the dancing and the socializing. You’ll hear songs you recognize and a few you won’t. I may even hit you up for a request. All in all, its a loose night in comfortable chairs with acoustic music. So shut the folk up and listen. Please.”
