Wood Brothers in concert
Alpenglow Free Summer Concert Series
Dialed-in vocal harmonies. Oliver’s gritty acoustic guitar. Chris’ virtuosic upright bass. Warrior poet lyrics. This is the fraternal synchronicity of Americana phenomenon, the Wood Brothers. Independently Oliver played guitar and sang with Southern blues rocker Tinsley Ellis before founding King Johnson, a hard-touring group of blues-inflected R&B, funk an country. Chris, meanwhile, formed Medeski Martin & Wood, which over tw decades became a cornerstone of contemporary jazz and abstract music. They are now joined by new full-time member Jano Rix, a drummer and ace-in-the-hoo multi-instrumentalist. Their songs dance between bluesy, classic country and swampy funk, mining the brothers’ timeless influences of Robert Johnson, Willie Nelson, and Charles Mingus.
