Woody Pines - Down Home SwingLIVE in Mick Murphy's, Ballymore Eustace, Co. Kildare, Monday, March 23rd, Doors 8:30pm; Gig: 9:15PM Sharp; Admission: €12 at the door.
No stranger to fans of the new folk music coming from all corners of the USA, alongside artists like Old Crow Medicine Show and Pokey LaFarge, Woody Pines continues to forage thru the secret world of old 78ʹ′s and to write new chapters in the Anthology of American Music. Integrating sounds from Leadbelly to Bob Dylan, from Woody Guthrie to Preservation Hall, Woody Pines belts out songs of fast cars, pretty women and hard luck with a distinctive vintage twang.
Recently signed by Nashville’s Muddy Roots Records, they will have a brand new album to promote in 2015, produced by Grammy-winner Mitch Dane and Mixed by Vance Powell, renowned as one of the best from studio work with the likes of Jack White, JD McPherson, Seasick Steve and Beck.
The trio’s distinctive bigger-than-three viper sound is beefed up by Skip Frontz Jr on upright bass, adding both foot tappin’ low-end and rapid fire percussion with his red hot slap technique, and Brad Tucker on vintage electric guitar, Resonator and vocal harmonies.
Maverick magazine praised the last album as “an intoxicating blend of rural and urban stringband, country blues, ragtime and jug band music”
