WILMINGTON — One-man folk act Shakey Graves has added a stop in Wilmington to his 2023 tour.

Shakey Graves, also known as Alejandro Rose Garcia, will be performing at Greenfield Lake Amphitheater on Wednesday, Aug. 2 at 6 p.m. Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday at 10 a.m., but presale starts Wednesday at 10 a.m. and ends Thursday at 10 p.m.

An actor turned singer-songwriter, Shakey Graves launched his act in 2009 while living in Los Angeles. He returned to his hometown of Austin, Texas, where he quickly became a huge draw for locals with his unique performances. He takes the stage with a “jerry-rigged” drum kit and plays multiple instruments.

In 2011, Shakey Graves released “Roll the Bones” with his creative take on traditional folk. NPR named him one of 10 artists fans “should’ve known in 2012.” He released “Donor Blues EP” in 2012, with a bluesier vibe and followed up with three LPs, including 2014’s “And the War Came,” 2018’s “Can’t Wake Up,” and 2023’s “Deadstock — A Shakey Graves Day Anthology.”
