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.
Wood & Wire is one of the most promising new bands on Austin’s bluegrass and acoustic scene. Mixing in elements of Americana and swing, its healthy dose of original music and traditional bluegrass tunes keep audiences riveted. The band keeps people on their toes, too, with a cappella ballads, funky acoustic jams and rippin’ fast instrumentals.
In the sometimes tightly defined genre of bluegrass music, Wood & Wire’s ‘band style’ ethos are not unheard of, but certainly atypical. Anyone wondering about Wood & Wire’s sound need not look any further than the four-piece band’s name, which honors the purity of acoustic instruments and the gorgeous music a skilled artist can coax out of just simple wood and wire. Though their sound is 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.
