Jonathan Wilson, Benji Hughes, Jenny O.

When: Tue., May 15 2012

JONATHAN WILSON “Could you swing me back there, to North Carolina ...” Jonathan Wilson sings on his acclaimed recent CD, Gentle Spirit. Yes, indeedy. Wilson finally brings it all back home for his first Charlotte appearance in a half-decade. Things haven’t changed much since he left town on his musical quest 15 years ago. Still skinny, still slinky, still long-haired, still creating some of the most mystical and thoughtful folk-pop-rock grooves around (as a solo artist and a producer to others). The new rub? The world has caught on. They’re ga-ga for him in the U.K. and Europe, where he’s cast as the prince of the new Laurel Canyon sound (even though he’s since moved neighborhoods, ha!). He’s off to open Tom Petty’s European tour shortly after this show, so catch our native son while you can. (Kathleen Johnson)
