Serendipity brought me together with Anthony Wilson. He was a guest at the Clarksdale White House. As I was telling him about our Home Concert Series, he mentioned that he was a musician. I said, maybe we will have you play here one day. My first impression of Anthony was a loving, open and warm-spirited man. I liked him immediately. 

Later, I decided to Google Anthony Wilson and was blown away by what I found. Anthony is a renown master guitarist, composer and arranger, plus he has a burgeoning photography career. His father, the legendary jazz trumpeter and bandleader Gerald Wilson, is from right down the road in Shelby, MS. That is why Anthony found himself here in the Mississippi Delta. In fact, he is composing music and photography of the Mississippi Delta to share his impressions of his father’s homeland and what it means for him to be here.

I checked with Anthony again about a home concert and he was willing to do one! He casually contacted me one day when we were in the planning stages and mentioned his friend and piano player Matt Rollings; Anthony wondered if it would be ok if Matt joined him for the concert. Google Matt Rollings.

Never did I imagine we would have world-class jazz guitarist Anthony Wilson and Multiplatinum Grammy award-winning producer, pianist and songwriter Matt Rollings perform an intimate house concert in our living room. Join us!!
