Joe Fletcher had made a pair of records with his band the Wrong Reasons, but when he began recording song sketches on his trusty four-track recorder for a new album, he noticed that the tracks sounded finished in their rough, grainy glory. Those songs ended up on 2014’s You’ve Got the Wrong Man, and the recordings themselves trace a path of an itinerant songwriter with midwestern roots but a penchant for wandering: Various songs were laid down to tape in an apartment in Rhode Island, a farmhouse in Georgia and Fletcher’s current home in Nashville. Regardless of the setting or level of fidelity, Fletcher wears a cockeyed grin and delivers his story-songs with a rich, weathered charm.

Raising Her Flag: Fletcher will be joined at this show by local singer-songwriter Beth Bombara.
