7 pm – Woody Pines – Nashville, TNWoody Pines

Ragtime, Boogie, Viper Jazz, Lighting Speed Folk. Full of stomp and swing, and jump and jive. It’s old-time feel-good music done by a young master who clearly understands that this kind of music was always about having a great time.

If you’re wondering where the music of Nashville troubadour WOODY PINES comes from, look to the streets. It was on the streets as a professional busker that Woody first cut his teeth, drawing liberally from the lost back alley anthems and scratchy old 78s of American roots music, whether country blues, jugband, hokum, or hillbilly. Heavy rollicking street performances are the key to some of today’s best roots bands, like Old Crow Medicine Show (Woody and OCMS’ Gill Landry used to tour the country in their own jugband), and they’re the key to Woody’s intensely catchy rhythms, jumpy lyrics, and wildly delirious sense of fun. Woody traveled all over the streets of this country, road testing his songs, drawing from the catchiest elements of the music he loved and adding in hopped-up vintage electrification to get that old country dancehall sound down right.

That’s why the songs on his new self-titled release WOODY PINES (released May 28 on underground label Muddy Roots Recordings) are so hot. This is gonzo folk music, the kind of raise-the-rafters, boot-shakin’ jump blues that used to be banging out of juke joints all over the South in the late 1940s, but now it’s burning into the earholes of a younger generation of Nashville kids, all looking for music with deep roots and something to hang on to.

9 pm Blue Caboose – Cincinnati, OHblue caboose

These guys brought down the house during the first three years of Canoegrass! They have quickly become favorites of Canoegrass nation and they will close out the weekend on the Camp Stage. Blue Caboose is an original folk band from Cincinnati, Ohio. Beginning in 2011, they spent a year developing their fun and unique stage show, and by the summer of 2012 had found themselves as busy as popcorn on a skillet. Their first album, Modern Limited was released in August of 2012, and within one year, has sold nearly 1000 copies. Blue Caboose is on a mission to get everyone smiling, dancing, singing along, clapping your hands and stomping your feet. They are a perfect fit for Canoegrass as their songs remind us all of their favorite things; The Ohio River Valley, trains, rivers, mountains, farmland, lakes, hiking, canoeing, good food, blue skies and family. Head to camp appreciating the simple pleasures in a world overstimulated with high tech gadgets and machinery.

Their strong repertoire of original music written, composed and combined by all members of the band are what sets them apart from the average traditional bluegrass ensemble. Their unique vocals that are accompanied with harmonies of the highs and lows are the only parts of their songs that give their fingers pause from the fast picking solos and instrumentation. They are tight and dynamic with an “In-your-face” style of playing fast and fluent, one song into the next
