Whitherward at Bon Ton L'Roy's
Saturday, March 25, 2017 - 7:00pm
Bon Ton L'Roy's Lighthouse Smokehouse presents Whitherward, an indie folk music duo from Nashville, on Saturday, March 25 at 7pm. This is an all-ages show. No cover charge.
Songwriters Ashley E. Norton and Edward A. Williams had been through a number of musical endeavors, but in December 2013 the prospect of a new project sounded intriguing. As details were hashed out, the core principles became readily evident: have fun and tour often. With a large stable of strong self- and co-written songs and a prominent mission statement, Ash and Ed were ready to embark on a new musical journey.
"Whitherward" is an Old English adverb that means “in which direction.” The word seems to invite an eternal question; it feels like the perfect fit for a duo that constantly seeks to reinvent itself in every aspect of its existence, always looking for the next impossible question to answer. There is forward; there is backward; and then there is Whitherward.
