William Elliott Whitmore

Friday, May 13, Fox Theatre, Boulder, 303-443-3399.

On his last album, 2009's Animals in the Dark, William Elliott Whitmore sang about the pulse of strange eyes glowing outside his Iowa farm and how closely they connected with the "malicious politicians with nefarious schemes" making his life hell in Washington. No matter what he sings about, it's understood that he will always do so with his jug and banjo held high and a stomp loud enough to scare animals of all types away. Lately, Whitmore has kept busy recording his forthcoming album, Field Songs, which tells the stories of the stark and spacious American landscapes where he cut his teeth and developed his mighty timbre. Whitmore's upcoming performance as part of Boulder's Roots and Blues Summit will showcase the power of the farm and the passion and soul that he earned from it.
