World-renowned musician returns to Washington Island

If you're gonna throw a barbecue, you need blues music. Or at least something close. Alex Wilson says his eponymous band is a mix of classic and contemporary blues along with some country twang and a little rockabilly thrown in for good measure. There's original music too. That eclectic Americana came to Death's Door Barbecue on Washington Island Saturday. Wilson is busy in the summer, doing four to six shows a week across the Midwest. He's a sought-after commodity overseas in addition to his American audience.

Wilson has performed at Death's Door BBQ four times now and Door County residents request him every year according to Chairman and President Dick Jepsen. Look for new music from Wilson's Group online at early next year. It might sound something like this.
