"Will Banister" on Stage 3 will be broadcast Monday, April 30th at 9:00 p.m.
Stage 3, a KENW-TV music special, showcases Will Banister, a 23-year old singer/songwriter from Clovis, NM and the Mulberry Band. Banister first gained attention with his stunning debut album, Turned Her On to Country. He performs selections from this album, other original songs, and some old country standards like Hank Williams' "Lovesick Blues." "I just really like that old classic country," says Banister. "I've been listening to it for 23 years and I've got a pretty good idea how a sad ol' country song goes."
Banister and the Mulberry Band recently returned from appearing at the International Festival Country of Music at London's Wembley Arena where their performance provided the "most memorable moment" of the festival and "brought the crowd to its feet."
