It was on the streets as a professional busker that Woody Pines first cut his teeth, drawing liberally from the lost back alley anthems and scratchy old 78s of American roots music, whether country blues, jugband, hokum, or hillbilly.
Woody and his trio can count a number of big hitters as fans including BBC Radio 2’s Bob Harris and outlaw country legend Billy Joe Shaver who declared: “They’re the best damn band I’ve ever heard!”. So come and check out their “fiery moonshine spirit that sparkles with feelgood freshness”.
"Woody sounds like Willie Nelson singing a Johnny Cash song in a 1930's Alabama Juke Joint. Wildly addicting". (No Depression). “Go and see them, you won't regret it ”! (American Roots UK). Tickets: £12
