Wood & Wire - Saturday, July 29th 8:00
It's been five years now since Wood & Wire sprouted out of the rich musical soil of Austin, Texas. They've cut their teeth at national festivals like Merlefest and Austin City Limits, and set the country on fire with their unique hybrid of tight, original bluegrass.
In this tightly defined genre, Wood & Wire's "band-style" ethos and clean traditional song crafting, so often associated with their Texas home, permeate their sound. That said, what comes out of the Wood & Wire blender is also something entirely its own. Tony Kamel -- leader singer, guitarist, mover, shaker, and primary songwriter -- brings his material to the group in a raw form and once shaken and stirred, the results are inimitable. "I think I'm most proud of how we've developed our sound together," says Kamel. "It feels great to step on stage feeling like we've really found our own style."
