Boise to Get a Dose of Wovenhand

Saturday, Feb. 2 at Visual Arts Collective


Any good revival requires an enigmatic leader. For Denver, Colo., band Wovenhand, that role is filled by singer David Eugene Edwards, who pens songs inspired equally by his Christian faith and early European history.

The former 16 Horsepower frontman left that band in 2001 to form Wovenhand as a solo project, which more than a decade later has filled out to include a revolving blend of violin, banjo, acoustic guitar and organ.

After finding early success with 2002's self-titled debut, which includes a haunting take on Bill Withers' "Ain't No Sunshine When She's Gone," Wovenhand has continued to distort country and folk themes into an enchanting brand of gothic bluegrass.
