Wilder Adkins - "When I'm Married" | LIVE at The Kennedy Center


Grand prize recipient of the NewSong Music Competition Wilder Adkins (Birmingham, Alabama-2016) delivers a soulful performance his breakout song "When I'm Married," which was feautured on SiriusXM's "The Coffee House" playlist. Wilder Adkins’s songwriting gleans as much from the earthy poetry of Wendell Berry and Mary Oliver as it does from the works of folk luminaries Richard Thompson and Bruce Cockburn. He’s a true theosophical spirit, arrestingly taciturn, but possessed of startling guitar skills, a wit as dry as October leaves, and a tremulous, dented voice that’s frankly mesmerizing. Part of Millennium Stage at The Kennedy Center, August 24, 2017. Watch the full performance: https://youtu.be/fDsyEyZu3vE Subscribe to The Kennedy Center! http://bit.ly/2gNFrtb
