Benjamin Wagner Live in Rockford Park
June 19 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Join singer-songwriter and Highlands neighbor Benjamin Wagner, and his all-star band for his Wilmington Summer Concert Series debut.
On Constellations, his tenth studio album, Wagner charts new adventures in hi-fi, fusing legendary Muscle Shoals instrumentation with Brooklyn’s indie edge.
Hewn from acoustic guitars, overdriven amplifiers, soaring harmonies, and plaintive cellos, these nine songs lean heavily on the machinery that put FAME Studios on the map. Wagner recorded Constellations with the legendary Muscle Shoals Swampers, a ragtag group of session players known for creating a distinctly southern combination of R&B, soul and country.
Wagner will be joined by Larry Scotten Jr. (drums), Sam Nobles (bass), Ismail Abdus-Salaam (guitar), plus special guests for his ninety-minute set.
