After a very successful first album, Al Wood (harmonica and vocals), solidly supported by the Woodsmen, Lindsay Pugh (guitar and vocals), Marty Sobb (guitar), Chris Breitner (bass) and Simon Meilleur (drums) will present us with their latest opus which is now fast ascending DAWG FM’s Top 20. And, to mark the event, a very impressive list of music personalities will be joining the Woodsmen. These highly anticipated musical guests for the evening so far include: Ottawa based guitar ace and relentlessly hardworking Al Tambay; the formerly emerging and now all the way there Hull singer and harmonica player Mathieu Gagnon. Our last confirmed guests are members of the Juno award winning Monkey Junk. Both Steve Marriner and Matt Sobb played on Al’s first CD and have remained closely associated with the band. It will be a rare opportunity to hear the Sobb brothers Matt and Marty share a stage as they commonly did in their younger days.
So there it is …. So many reasons to attend this Woodsmen show! A new CD, the full-size five-piece Woodsmen band, and some amazing guests – and just enough controlled unpredictability to make it THE Blues Show that everyone will remember! So many reasons to be there when Al Wood & The Woodsmen will be releasing their second album, “Right on Cue” with their renowned guests, Mathieu Gagnon, Al Tambay & MonkeyJunk.

rorie kelly is a small redheaded tornado of sound. First-time listeners often comment, “I can’t believe that voice came out of that body.” rorie writes catchy, melodic rock songs that she plays with enough passion to break guitar strings--and go right on playing without batting an eye. The singer/songwriter has been compared to artists ranging from Fiona Apple to Janis Joplin to Liz Phair. She has opened for Alix Olsen and Jen Chapin, and was named one of Long Island’s “Top Ten Indie Artists You’ve Never Heard Of” by Pulse Magazine.

This show will be performed in a church that seats 200. The acoustic are wonderful and TG3, with Peter on piano, plan on taking full advantage of the setting to present a mother-lode of new tunes from their upcoming CD. It will be the first public presentation of new material that Terry, Lyndell and Wayne have been developing in the studio for the last year and plans are to record the whole event live.
He has been playing in pubs and clubs festivals and fairs since 1987 and continues to tour BC, Alberta, Ontario & Quebec each year. His one-man show combines acoustic & electric guitars with soulful vocals and harmonica solos. He performs music from his original CDs plus plenty of folk-rock, blues and pub favourites. A few road stories and 25 years of showmanship make for a fun, upbeat & dynamic night of music.
