Nashville troubadour Woody Pines first cut his teeth as a professional busker, drawing liberally from the lost back alley anthems and scratchy old 78s of American roots music, whether country, blues, jug band, hokum, or hillbilly. Woody traveled all over the streets of this country, road testing his songs and “hillbilly boogie” sound, 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.
These heavy rollicking street performances are the key to Woody’s intensely catchy rhythms, jumpy lyrics, and wildly delirious sense of fun. 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 in Woody’s music, there’s never an idea that roots music should be a recreation of an older time. Instead, he taps the vein of this music that’s still beating today, finding common ground with the old hucksters and bar-hounds who created the music in the first place.
The Common Fence Point Hall is located at 933 Anthony Road, Portsmouth, RI. Per tradition, all shows at CFM’s Portsmouth venue are BYOB & Picnic. Concert-goers are invited to bring food and beverages to enjoy during the performances.
BBQ pulled pork sandwich plates, southern desserts and more will be available for purchase from our kitchen. The hall is fully accessible. Ticket prices vary.
