An Extra Helping of the Blue Plate Special : The Way Down Wanderers “Salt Creek”

The Way Down Wanderers brought their 5-piece modern-folk Americana act to the Blue Plate Special stage as they made their way to the Bristol Rhythm and Roots Festival. Front-men and founders, Austin Thompson and Collin Krause, met in their hometown of Peoria, IL when they joined the same folk band and embarked on their first tour at the ages of 14 and 18 years old. The two became fast friends and soon began writing music together, ultimately forming The Way Down Wanderers when Collin was 16 and Austin, 20 years old. The band’s debut, self-titled album has recently been released, and was produced by Mike Marsh of the Avett Brothers. The Way Down Wanderers closed their set on the Blue Plate Special with this energetic multi-song jam, which they call “Salt Creek”. Can you name all the tunes? (Check yourself below.)
