Special Notes on Dogs and Chairs:
For the safety and enjoyment of all our guests, we kindly remind you that dogs are no longer allowed in the concert venue.
Due to the steepness of our new concert venue, guests may bring their own chair to our concerts provided that the chair height is 9" or less. “Low back” chairs are therefore allowed, but camping chairs and chairs with sharp legs are not allowed.There are no exceptions to this rule and guests bringing chairs that do not meet this requirement will be asked to take them back to their vehicles. Chairs meeting the height requirements are available for purchase at Canyon Mountain Sports.
Info on The Wood Brothers:
Two brothers decide to form a band, adapting the blues, folk and other roots‐music sounds they loved as kids into their own evocative sound and twining their voices in the sort of high‐lonesome harmony blend for which sibling singers are often renowned. While that’s not a terribly unusual story, the Wood Brothers - Chris and Oliver - took a twisty path to their ultimate collaboration. Indeed, they pursued separate projects for some 15 years before joining forces.
It was during a fateful session in Western Massachusetts that Chris met keyboard wizard John Medeski; with drummer Billy Martin, they would go on to form the hugely influential, genre‐busting instrumental trio Medeski Martin & Wood in the early ’90s. MMW released a string of discs combining jazz, funk, blues, experimental noise and myriad other subgenres and styles into their own distinctive amalgam, and mesmerized audiences worldwide with their seemingly telekinetic improvisation.
Oliver formed King Johnson with his buddy Chris Long, layering R&B, funk, soul and country elements over their beloved blues influences.
In 2006, the brothers joined forces pursuing the musical adventure they’d begun in childhood. For although their paths diverged for many years, and they forged very different careers in disparate places, the Wood Brothers are never far from the musical currents that formed their musical impulses in the first place.
