Wilder Adkins is the 2016 winner of the NewSong Music Performance and Songwriting Competition. He has had the honor of performing at both the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. and Lincoln Center in NYC, although his favorite venue was a 900 year old church in Cambridge, England. Adkins’ songwriting gleans as much from the earthy poetry of Wendell Berry and Mary Oliver as from the works of folk luminaries Richard Thompson and Bruce Cockburn. His song “When I’m Married” has been played heavily on Sirius XM The Coffeehouse.
