As seen at Ramsbottom Festival, folk singer-songwriter and teller of tales Otis Gibbs returns to The Met.

Much of his work concentrates on the world that is ignored by pop culture. Sometimes forgotten, obsolete or simply marginalized, it is a world that doesn’t fit into a twenty-second sound bite. Otis has spent the last fifteen
years travelling across America and has a story to share about each stop along the way.
