Here at The Subscription Rooms, Stroud, we’re simply thrilled to be able to host a show for the downright wonderful Woody Pines! On their last visit to European shores last year, these guys did indeed ‘rip it up’ leaving reviewers all over the country frothing at the gills, so naturally we’re very excited that they’ve chosen to come and play for us all in Stroud. This one will sell out doubly quick, so even though it’s a way away yet we’d really recommend getting your tickets early!
And if you’re wondering where the music of Nashville troubadour Woody Pines comes from, then look to the streets! It was on the streets as a professional busker that Woody first cut his teeth, drawing liberally from the lost back alley anthems and scratchy old 78’s of American roots music, whether country blues, jugband, hokum or hillbilly. Heavy, rollicking street performances are the key to some of todays’ best roots bands, like Old Crow Medicine Show (Woody and OCMS’ Gill Landry used to tour the country in their own jugband), and they’re the key to Woody’s intensely catchy rhythms, jumpy lyrics, and wildly delirious sense of fun. Woody travelled all over the streets of the States road testing his songs, drawing from the catchiest elements of the music he loved and adding in a hopped-up vintage electrification to get that old country dancehall sound down right.
“Woody Pines is the best band I ever heard in my life, I swear! I’m their biggest fan now!” (Billy Joe Shaver)
