What you'll do

These are spontaneous, uplifting experiences that pair a beautiful natural setting with an intimate acoustic concert of at least 2 musicians. It’s a double bill with nature!

I'll be bringing my violin along with a special guest from the Austin music scene.
We'll play tunes as we hike into a natural spot near or in Austin, play a short concert at a secret wooded spot, and play more music and chat on the way out.

Feel free to ask or text me about who I've got scheduled for specific dates if you're curious.

Always top shelf performers.

Shows are always RAIN OR SHINE as we have a beautiful back up indoor location.

"This was my first Strings in the Woods show and I have to say it was nothing short of spectacular. I have lived in Austin for over 25 years so really appreciate the "keep it real" culture which artists like yourself continue to foster with creative events like this. The venue was great, the musicianship was top notch" M. Stellfox

Hey hey Will! Thank you! This sooo cool! The event was magical~ composition of notes and environment filled my soul. Thank you for following your vision. E. Davidson

Super soothing, romantic and peaceful. Kicking myself for not bringing wine but really a great experience. Recommend bringing a blanket to lay on, parking is close so you can set up after the walk or before so you don’t have to tote it with you

My experience with William isn’t exactly what I expected, but I can say that I’m very happy the activity was how it turned out. An absolute surreal experience listening to beautiful acoustic music in nature as the light faded from the sky above us, I’m very happy that I joined the hike that night.

Amazing evening! One of my favorite nights I’ve had here in Austin (I’ve been here 23 years)! The guided hike was really informative about natural wildlife and the whole time we were surrounded by the sweet sounds of a solo violinist. It was so lovely! And the concert at the end sounded absolutely beautiful as we laid back in the grass and watched the sunset fade into a starry night sky...

Truly enchanting experience. We brought my son (23) and his girlfriend. Interesting and scenic hike with informed guide, musical accompaniment, and a very cool private concert at the end. They felt that they experienced Austin in an authentic...and very cool way. Thanks Will, band, and Howie Richey!

Thanks for a beautiful experience. I love it when I can say I have done something for the first time, and last night, I can say I hiked to fiddle music! Thank you, Will, for that! Very intimate and magical evening to experience an Austin area creek and nature location. Never disappointed - Marc, Will and Stephen - love the music. Best way to experience live music in Austin - outdoors, letting the sun set and the night d music wash over us!
