My Black Friday surprise was wandering into J&R and being treated to an in-store performance by Willie Nile. Liked what I heard and bought three copies of his latest, which he not only signed but conscientiously worked to make sure the ink dried so they wouldn't smudge, and talked pleasantly all the while.
Since then I've read up on him; he's a down-to-earth guy, got a degree in philosophy (great for songwriters, I bet), and a week ago sang at a hunger benefit in his hometown (Buffalo). USA Today recently highlighted "One Guitar" from the current CD.
