Will McFarlane, guitarist extraordinaire, songwriter, member of the legendary Muscle Shoals studio rhythm section, in-demand session musician and a former member of Bonnie Raitt’s band, will be making a stop at WHUP on Friday, June 2 for a 4:00 live acoustic session in advance of the annual WillFest three-day extravaganza at Durham’s Blue Note Grill. He’ll be joined in the WHUP studios by his wife Janet, a stellar vocalist and longtime collaborator on various projects.
Will lived in the Triangle for several years in the aughts before relocating to Muscle Shoals, but during his NC stay he quickly established himself as one of the go-to studio sidemen for local bands, and the selfless contributions by both Will and Janet to numerous benefit events endeared them to Triangle music fans across the spectrum. He continues to play and record at the highest level. Tune in for a special hour of music and conversation with Will and Janet on Friday!
