Maybe your Austin Music Minute host is a bit biased. Just a bit. The heart strings might be ruled by this gang’s collective bluegrass strings, but let this be perfectly clear: Wood & Wire is magic.
Whether you’ve been a longtime fan of the Grammy-nominated outfit, or you’re discovering their music for the first time, it’s easy to get a heart-full with their latest LP, No Matter Where It Goes From Here. Mind you, it’s every bit the impressive, finger-flyin’ instrumental prowess the band’s known for, thoughtfully woven through each story they tell that makes the magic evident, but these stories are not necessarily part of your standard bluegrass fare (“John,” “Pigs,” “El Paso”). In other words…another winner, in that distinctive way Wood & Wire delivers it.
Join the guys for the celebration of their new music on their livestream release show, at 8 p.m. Central tonight, Saturday September 12, on Wood & Wire’s Facebook, YouTube channel and Twitch. Half of tonight’s donations go to U.S. hunger relief organization Feeding America.
