The Wood Brothers – 1/22 – Wonder Ballroom (Portland, OR)

Chris and Oliver Wood have a pair of pretty impressive resumes on their own: Chris co-founded the jazz trio Medeski, Martin & Wood, and Oliver cut his teeth as the guitarist for Tinsley Ellis. Together, though, the Wood Brothers create something wholly unique that meshes their jazz-trained skills with the roots music that they grew up on in Boulder, Colorado. It’s a combination that has won them praise from critics and musicians alike, as well as the respect of artists like Lucinda Williams and Steve Earle, both of whom have brought the Wood Brothers on tour. This year, they’re hitting the road as headliners, and their tour stops by the Wonder Ballroom; for more information and to purchase tickets, click here.
