DC based Vandaveer will stop by WTJU this Wednesday, May 8, for a visit to the Cosmic American Jamboree before their concert that same night at the Southern Cafe and Music Hall in downtown Charlottesville. The band has just released its latest album, Oh Willie, Please,,,, filled with some of their favorite murder ballads.
Vandaveer is the song-singing, record-making, globetrotting project penned and put forth by alt-folk tunesmith Mark Charles Heidinger. Born in Ohio, raised in Kentucky, and currently camped out in the nation’s capital, Vandaveer offers up melodic Americana that is both haunting and easy, forlorn and welcoming, with stories as universal as the songs they inhabit. Vandaveer shapeshifts from studio to stage and back with a revolving cast of characters, most prominent among them Rose Guerin, offering up the loveliest harmonies heard this side of Eden.
