Woody Pines w/Blackfoot GypsiesPop/Rock
Whether busking on a street corner or performing with a full band in a concert hall, world traveler Woody Pines’ rootsy blend of styles is permeated with old-time showmanship and melodies so catchy you’d think they were coated in tar. Comparisons to Old Crow Medicine Show are not entirely unwarranted: He and OCMS’ Gill Landry played together for several years in Kitchen Syncopators, and Landry and bandmate Ketch Secor have contributed to Pines’ records. However, his work combines those familiar prewar folk roots with strong threads from jazz and vaudeville/medicine show traditions, with a little electric blues sneaking in. There’s even a spirited cover of Bo Diddley’s “Who Do You Love” from Pines’ recent tour floating around the ’Net, and it’s a good thing he is just as proficient with the harder stuff: He shares the stage with Blackfoot Gypsies, one of the best — and heaviest — two-piece electric blues revival outfits around.
