Chris Wilson returns to Springville for a hometown concert at Springville Center for the Arts.

Wilson’s honest and emotional folk music has taken him to MTV’s “The Cut,” brought soundtrack work (Happy Gilmore), and spans performances across the globe. His sound is reminiscent of a young John Denver with clean arrangements and melodies that are simple but powerfully sincere.

He will perform a mix of his original songs and music from a CD of original Christmas music at the Mongerson Theater at Springville Center for the Arts, 37 N Buffalo Street, Springville on Saturday, Dec. 17 at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are available in advance for $10 at or by calling (716) 592-9038. Tickets at the door are $12.
