Tonight at 7:00 pm Willie will be honored with a special Lifetime Achievement Award at the River People Music Festival, hosted by UNC-Pembroke. The is historic event features Native musicians who have worked with Willie and been inspired by him, truly some of the finest artists anywhere in the country (but we are particularly proud that all of them call North Carolina home). The all-star list includes:
Pura Fe
Jana Mashonee
Dark Water Rising
Lakota John & Leyla Locklear
Deer Clan Singers

They play a remarkable variety of music, as Willie does, from blues to rock n roll to folk to traditional to pop to….well, let’s just say each belongs in a category of his or her own. The night’s music will be capped off with a tribute to Willie as he leads the entire group in a few of his original songs.
