The Waymores

Highly successful singer-songwriters often find themselves in a solitary place.  As the interest in their work grows among other performing artists, their time becomes more focused as a songwriter, with less time to actually perform.  But sometimes these songwriters find others they respect greatly, who are facing the same dilemma.  And theirs songs, their styles and their sound just clicks.

This is the origin of The Waymores.  Three of the finest singer-songwriters in America, Don Henry, Sally Barris and Tom Kimmel, balance their musical lives well.  Together as The Waymores, they have become well known on the east side of the Mississippi.  For the first time in recent history they will be touring California.  We are delighted this includes a visit to Música Del Río.

Don Henry’s songs have been recorded by Ray Charles, Patti Page, Conway Twitty, Kathy Mattea and dozens of other great artists.  They shine brightest when sung by Don himself.  Long appreciated as one of Nashville’s finest singer-songwriters, Don is revered by fans, critics and peers alike for being one of the most inspiring, entertaining and funny artists around.

Whether in her own hands or those of hit artists like Martina McBride or Lee Ann Womack, Sally Barris’ music makes an indelible impression. And while her writing credits mightily impress—her songs have been covered by Trisha Yearwood & Keith Urban, John Michael Montgomery, Kathy Mattea and many others; her fans are truly captivated by her bright spirit and high mountain soprano.

Tom Kimmel’s business card facetiously reads “Overnight Success”; but the truth is far from it. After graduating college he worked as a short order cook, bus boy, taxi driver, chef, shipping clerk, lab technician, janitor, waiter, bartender and window washer on his way to establishing himself as an award winning songwriter for the likes of Johnny Cash, Linda Ronstadt and Joe Cocker.  His songs have brought critical acclaim for his own performances and over a half dozen CDs.

Don, Sally and Tom are The Waymores; and they will be joining us at Música Del Río for the first time on May 9.  You will want to be there!
