Country-Folk Troubadour Jerry Leger & The Situation – An Act You Don’t Want to Miss
If you haven’t had a chance to check out Jerry Leger & The Situation, you need to come to Mariposa Folk Festival to find out what you’re missing. Jerry Leger is blazing a musical trail on his own terms, earning an enthusiastic fan base and immense respect among his peers. He’s sort of a country-folk troubadour with eloquent, roots-based tunes and a great show. His album, Some Folks Know (2012), is about characters that seem dangerously unsatisfied and pushed to the brink. It’s edgy, honest and compelling. Fitting stuff for a musical voyeur who, as a kid, got hooked on two of the greatest ever country-folk observers of the human condition, Hank Williams and Hank Snow.
