The Long Center is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit dedicated to broadening the appreciation and enhancing the enjoyment of the cultural arts.
Long Center Concert Club presents Wood & Wire, Wednesday, January 17 in Rollins Studio Theatre.
It’s been 5 years since Wood & Wire sprouted out of the rich musical soil of Austin, TX. In that time, they’ve written music, recorded records, and performed at some of the most notable festivals and venues across the country.
In the sometimes tightly defined genre of bluegrass music, Wood & Wire’s ‘band style’ ethos are not unheard of, but certainly atypical. As are the elements of song crafting, so often associated with their TX home. Tony Kamel—lead singer, guitarist, mover, shaker, and primary songwriter—brings his material to the group in a malleable form, and the results are undeniable. “I think I’m most proud of how we’ve developed our sound together,” says Kamel, “It feels great to step on stage feeling like we’ve really found our own style.”
A culmination of very distinct musical personalities, there’s one ambition they all share, “Our goal is to show up and drive, so that the energy hits you, and it’s undeniable,” says Bassist Dom Fisher.
