Greenfest Artist Preview: Jamie Wilson
Of the two excellent “Trishas” appearing at Greenfest, Jamie Wilson leans much more heavily towards traditional country. Her voice recalls the high lonesome voices of country music’s past, and her songs are stripped-down, heart-filled songs of truth. Wilson is currently in the studio working on her first full-length solo album. Despite her traditional country leanings, Wilson’s marvelous vocal and instrumental talents also give her some folk music chops as well. Like Emmylou Harris and a few others, her voice blends well with traditional folk songs, and Wilson’s ability to play guitar, mandolin, and harmonica also helps her standout among contemporaries. Jamie Wilson is a voice that has been missing in country music lately, and her upcoming solo debut is long overdue. You do not want to miss her at this year’s Greenfest.
