Progressive roots music will be in the spotlight with this weekend’s South Shore gig featuring the Chad Wilkins Band.

“Mystic minstrel Chad Wilkins is an American/Australian singer-songwriter bringing heart-songs that reveal a better way for a generation in transitional times on our planet!

“From his lively, progressive grooves to his deeply prayerful chants, spanning many genres, Chad’s rootsy folk anthems carry themes of love, gratitude, risk, honor and pure vibrant life — giving voice to our cry for spiritual transformation, harmony with the Earth, and hope for a bright future,” states the artist’s online biography.

His first full-length release, “Show Us The Way Of The Heart,” dropped in 2014 and was quickly followed by 2015’s “This New Ancient Paradigm.”

“Touring extensively, Chad’s performance style is unique and spontaneous — whether performing solo, with his full band, or anywhere in between, he guides his listeners through an interactive journey ranging from dancing celebration to mindful meditation to sing-along declarations,” continues the bio.

During his career, Wilkins — who grew up in Lake Tahoe and relocated to Australia in 2004 — has appeared at Australia’s Uplift and Byron Spirit festivals, the United States’ Beloved Festival and additional gigs throughout the West Coast.

The Chad Wilkins Band takes the stage at Whiskey Dick’s Saloon on Saturday, Aug. 19, at 9 p.m.

The gig is free to attend and there is no cover.
