“They deliver nourishment for mind and body with great licks and even greater joy… There is something about The Wood Brothers’ music that serves to lighten the mood and elevate the spirits.” NPR

Nashville-based experimental roots trio The Wood Brothers combines a “rustic folk sound with a jolt of sonic and stylistic playfulness” (Aspen Times). With soulful vocals, rich harmonies, unwavering grooves and searing guitar work, bassist Chris Wood (also of Medeski Martin & Wood), his brother Oliver on acoustic and electric guitars and multi-instrumentalist Jano Rix – who plays percussion and keyboards and sings, simultaneously – harness a kaleidoscopic array of influences and exemplary musicianship into a must-see live show. They received a Grammy Award nomination for their sixth and most recent album, One Drop of Truth, drifting effortlessly between styles as diverse as plaintive country folk and electrified blues funk.
