XPoNential Music Festival 2009 Artist

John Wesley Harding and The English UK

John Wesley Harding and The English UKSinger-songwriter John Wesley Harding may take his stage name from a Dylan album, but he's no mere replicate of his namesake's sound. Since leaving his Ph.D. studies at Cambridge University for a music career in 1988, the British-born musician (who's real name is Wesley Stace) has released over ten albums drawing from a wide assortment of influences. Sharing the stage with such legends as Lou Reed, Robyn Hitchcock, Joan Baez, and Bruce Springsteen - with whom he recorded a duet for his album Awake - he's amassed a loyal cult following across international borders who anxiously awaited his 2009 release Who Was Changed and Who Was Dead, his first rock album in five years.
