Host of the roots music history podcast American Songcatcher, Nicholas Edward Williams is a multi-instrumentalist and storyteller who is dedicated to “playing it forward” by preserving the songs and styles that have shaped our country: Ragtime, Piedmont blues, Traditional Folk and Old Time. Joining him as The NEW Quintet are Emma Dubose (Fiddle, Harmony), Jade Watts (Upright Bass, Harmony), Gordon Inman (Clarinet, Harmony) and Cody Ray (Guitar, Slide, Harmony). Together, this group adds a wall of sound with big harmonies and lush textures that deepen the broad range of traditional and original material put out by Williams, as heard on his critically acclaimed sophomore release from late 2021, Folk Songs For Old Times’ Sake. The record has been heralded by the likes of Grammy-winning musician David Holt, who added: “With tasteful guitar arrangements and a voice that draws you right in, these recordings roll along like a mountain stream.”
