Willy Mason is a fascinating songwriter with a fascinating family tree (a direct descendant of the 19th-century philosopher William James, the brother of novelist Henry James.) His first big break came in 2004 when Conor Oborst fell in love with his work, which has drawn comparisons to Springsteen's Nebraska, or Salinger's Holden Caulfield. He's been on a big tour supporting Mumford & Sons this year, but plays Asheville with the great Laura Marling Wednesday night.
