Nashville hotshot Woody Pines and his band are widely regarded as one of the most entertaining acts on the Americana circuit.

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 78s of American roots music, whether country blues, jug band, hokum, or hillbilly. Heavy rollicking street performances are the key to his intensely catchy rhythms, jumpy lyrics and wildly delirious sense of fun, drawn from the catchiest elements of the music he loved before adding in hopped-up vintage electrification to get that old country dancehall sound down right. This is gonzo folk music, the kind of raise-the-rafters, boot-shakin’ jump blues that used to be banging out of juke joints all over the South in the late 1940s.

Having recorded their latest album with Grammy winning producer Vance Powell (Jack White, Seasick Steve), the trio’s distinctive bigger-than-three viper sound is beefed up by Skip Frontz Jnr on upright bass and Brad Tucker on vintage electric guitar and vocal harmonies and has seen them grace main stages at the likes of Celtic Connections, Shetland Folk Festival.
