Clonmel World Music proudly presents Woody Pines (Nashville, USA) at the Raheen House Hotel in Clonmel on Thursday, March 19th.

This gig will feature a fantastic band who are currently based in Nashville USA called Woody Pines. After many successful UK and Ireland tours they are widely regarded as one of the most entertaining acts on the Americana circuit.

With artists like Pokey Lafarge, Woody Pines continues to forage through the secret world of old 78s and to write new chapters in the anthology of American music.

Integrating sounds from Leadbelly to Bob Dylan, from Woodie Guthrie to Preservation Hall, Woody Pines belts out songs of fast cars, pretty women and hard luck with a distinctive vintage twang.

The bands distinctive viper sound is brought together by Woody who plays the National Guitar, harmonica and floor tom, singing in a voice sounding uncannily like a young Willie Nelson. Joining him in the band is Skip Frontz Jr. on the upright bass, adding both foot tappin’ low-end and rapid fire percussion with his sought after slap technique. Brad Tucker on the vintage electric guitar and with great vocal harmonies  fills out the trio.

Doors for the gig will open at 8pm at the Raheen House Hotel. There will be no support act and the band will start at 9pm prompt.

Tickets are €15 each and are available in Premier Music Centre Clonmel on 052 612 9811, from Gerry Lawless on 086 338 9619 and from Martha Beardmore on 087 910 7201.
