Put simply, Van Wilks is one of Austin’s best rock guitarists – plying his trade with workman-like consistency in our town since the late 1970s.
A member of the Texas Music Hall Of Fame, a winner of Austin Music Awards as both best acoustic and electric guitarist – Wilks has just issued “21st Century Blues” – his first CD in 10 years.
His fans and peers include Billy Gibbons and Eric Johnson – as well as music lovers from Moscow to Paris to Madrid.
Van Wilks and his band play a CD release show this Saturday (11/28) at Threadgill’s. Get tickets to the show here!
