I am so far behind in blog writing I am going to reach back to our last New Orleans trip for some photos of the Wood Brothers.
The Wood Brothers are Chris on string bass and Oliver on guitar. It's a kind of folky blues/Americana thing going on that has chord progressions you have heard before but what makes it a bit different is that the phrases resolve a bit differently that you might expect in ways that are unexpectedly pleasing and surprising to the ear.
Multi instrumentalist Jano Rix plays drums, melodica and and unusual percussion instrument the shuitar.
Here's a close up of the shuitar headstock. Careful with that spelling. Some people call my playing "shitar."
Oliver plays some cool guitars. Here's a nice thin hollow body Guild.
Chris on bass.
Jano on melodica.
Check these guys out. Their new album is due in October.
