WALDOBORO — Massachusetts-based indie-rock artist Will Dailey performs Thursday, Aug. 19, at 7 p.m. at the Waldo Theatre, 916 Main St. This in-person concert continues the newly renovated and reopened theatre’s new live music series.

Dailey is an acclaimed independent recording and performing artist. His latest album, “National Throat,” received stellar reviews and more than eight million spins on Spotify, reached the top 20 on Billboard’s HeatSeeker chart, and won Album of the Year in the Boston Music Awards, New England Music Awards, and Improper Bostonian Magazine.

Often described as a venn diagram of multiple genres, Dailey’s rich vintage vibe channeled through his authentic and energetic performances inspired famed rock journalist Dan Aquilante to dub him “the real deal.”

Dailey has shared the stage and studio with Eddie Vedder, Willie Nelson, Roger McGuinn, Kay Hanley, G Love, Steve Earle and Tanya Donelly. In June 2013 he was featured on a Stephen King/John Mellencamp project produced by T Bone Burnett called “Ghost Brothers Of Darkland County.” He’s also played at Farm Aid four times alongside Nelson, Mellencamp, Dave Matthews, and Neil Young.
