Ubangi Stomp Club presents
^ Upstairs ^
North Carolina hotshots Woody Pines have wowed the crowds on both sides of the Atlantic and last time they toured over here, reviewers unanimously declared them to be one of the most entertaining acts on the Americana circuit. Now, the three-piece return for their Irish tour, and promise once more to deliver what The Scotsman described as “a rollicking and engagingly idiosyncratic” show. Recently signed by Muddy Roots Records, they will have a brand new album to promote, produced by Grammy-winner Vance Powell, renowned as one of the best following studio work with the likes of Jack White, JD McPherson, Seasick Steve and Beck.
Maverick magazine praised their last release as “an intoxicating blend of rural and urban stringband, country blues, ragtime and jug band music”, and after they appeared before him at the big Nelsonville Folk & Blues Festival, Billy Joe Shaver, the top gun Outlaw Country legend came on stage and declared: “They’re the best damn band I’ve ever heard!”
Woody sounds like Willie Nelson singing a Johnny Cash song in a 1930’s Alabama Juke Joint.Wildly addicting, one magical album.” ~No Depression
