William Tyler 

When: Sat., Sept. 17, 8 p.m. 2016
Price: $15



Across a handful of LPs, fingerpicking guitar phenom William Tyler has more or less kept to himself. On his 2008 release as The Paper Hats, Deseret Canyon, and 2010's Behold the Spirit, Tyler spun intricate guitar yarns with no accompaniment. But for 2013's Impossible Truth, he adorned his playing with occasional halos of pedal steel and horns. On Modern Country, released in June, he chases those expanded instrumental ends even further. The result is a gorgeous, rich record in which diverse textures highlight Tyler's detailed playing rather than smothering it. It's his most concrete and, perhaps, his most focused album yet. Though he most often performs solo, Tyler arrives in Saxapahaw with a full band in tow, all the better to bring Modern Country's subtle colors to life. —Allison Hussey
