Acclaimed singer-songwriter Korby Lenker will perform July 13 at Brewminatti in Prosser.
Showtime is 7 p.m. Tickets are $14 and are available at therootscellar.com.
For his upcoming album, Thousand Springs, Lenker chose an unconventional path. He skipped the recording studio and instead headed home to Idaho “to record in places that held particular meaning for him,” a news release said.
“Venturing forth with his guitar, some recording gear and a tent, he captured his vocal and guitar parts in more than a dozen locales, including the edge of the Snake River Canyon, a cabin north of Sun Valley and his undertaker father’s mortuary.”
He then hit the road, gathering vocal and instrumental contributions from musician friends, including Nora Jane Struthers, Anthony Da Costa, Carrie Elkin, Amy Speace, Molly Tuttle, Kai Welch, Angel Snow, Becky Warren and the Punch Brothers’ Chris ‘Critter’ Eldridge.
“In Madison, Wisconsin, Portland, Oregon, Seattle, Los Angeles, Boston, Austin and Nashville, he recorded their work in backyards, hotel rooms and even a bookstore, then went home to edit them into Thousand Springs,’” the release said.
The album comes out July 14 on Soundly Music via RED distribution.
Lenker is a seasoned performer who’s shared the stage with artists such as Willie Nelson, Keith Urban and Chris Isaak, Susan Tedeschi, Amy Grant and Nickel Creek. He’s won numerous songwriting honors, including first place awards at the 2016 Rocky Mountain Folks Festival, 2012’s Kerrville Folk Festival and 2006’s Merlefest.
Brewminatti is at 713 Sixth St.
