Music through the Decades
WhitherwardUpon its creation in 2014, Edward A. Williams and Ashley E. Norton set a goal to play music they love for people who love music. The name Whitherward glowed in the confines of the Dictionary.com app and they knew it was theirs to set free. Now a full-time, national & international storyteller touring duo, Whitherward wanders the country and overseas - never settling in one place. They play Americana/indie-folk music and are compared to a modern-day Simon & Garfunkel, with influences of rock, folk, jazz and classical. Come hear their music and the stories behind the songs. As always, meet the band in a QnA session after the show. Free, fun and family friendly.
