Wood Belly was the 2018 winner of the Telluride Bluegrass Band Competition. The instrumentation and rhythmic drive of the band is like a tree trunk centered in bluegrass with branches that uninhibitedly reach out in many directions. There is a powerful focus on songwriting, with influences from multiple genres. Wood Belly, like other bands in the Newgrass or Grassicana realm, is rooted in tradition but refuses to be confined. Their sound is authentic, passionate and always entertaining. Turkeyfoot opens the evening.
Venue: The Fox Theatre
