Change is the source of all possibility. The song I wrote last November, Your Heart Is Amazing, focused on the new people and possibilities in my own life at a time when the future of All Those Who Wander was teetering on the edge. What would the future hold?

A revival. With the work of a long time contributor to this project, mandolinist Forrest Alvarez, and the addition of a home grown Fort Morgan fiddler named Anthony Vick, the music has made a come back in its own way. We booked 3 performances in March and June, and I’m working on several more as I write new songs about the dawning of a new day, not only for me, but for the music of All Those Who Wander.

The days of the duo may be over, but the new All Those Who Wander has some exciting changes coming, which will mean some incredible new possibilities for a guitarist, a fiddler, and a mandolinist. Just when I thought I was in the final pages of the story, it revived itself for a whole new adventure. So, stick with us, and we’ll stick with you! Let’s make some music together!

All Those Who Wander is a folk music project by Colorado songwriter Nick Booker. His work is characterized by his own vivid small town storytelling as well as the unique retelling of stories both ancient and modern. From fast and furious Bluegrass to old world Celtic and of course original songs that are the product of both, All Those Who Wander is both a realization and a revival of the folk tradition. The project walks in the footsteps of great and varied folk artists such as Stan Rogers and Old Crow Medicine Show while paving the way with new stories and new ways of telling them.
