Robbie Fulks w/ Woody Pines
"Mr. Fulks is more than a songwriter. He's a gifted guitarist who has taught for years at the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago, he's a soulful singer with an expressive honky-tonk tenor, and he's a natural performer. It rings true when he says he's only truly comfortable when he's onstage or when he's totally alone. But what really sets him apart is his songwriting, which is one part artful country, one part artful sendup of country and one part a little of everything else." - New York Times

No stranger to fans of the new folk music coming from all corners of the USA. Alongside artists like Old Crow Medicine Show and Pokey LaFarge, Woody Pines continues to forage thru the secret world of old 78′s 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.
Woody was a founding member of the Kitchen Syncopators, a legendary busking street jug-band from Eugene, OR, that were one of the most exciting acts to emerge out of the West Coast folk scene in recent history. Since the Kitchen Syncopators disbanded years ago, Woody Pines has been writing and recording albums and frequently performing for audiences everywhere, while co-founder of the band, Gill Landry, has gone on to join Old Crow Medicine Show while pursuing his own solo projects.
Recently signing with Nashville’s Muddy Roots Music, for the release of the much anticipated new record and the subsequent release of Woody’s four independent releases has this band working hard in the studio, on the road, and on the songwriting front-line.
The distinctive viper sound is brought together with Skip Frontz Jr. on the upright bass, adding both foot tappin’ low-end and rapid fire percussion with his sought after slap technique that has blown people away night after night. Brad Tucker on the vintage electric guitar and vocal harmonies fills out the trio, working his magic to make the band sound bigger then they are. Woody plays the National Guitar, harmonica and floor tom, singing in a voice sounding uncannily like a young Willie Nelson.
“Woody Pines brings that low-key street corner style of performance to his stage show, but with all the polish and seasoned professionalism of tour-bus-and-green-room rock stardom.” ~ Ali Marshall, Mtn Xpress
