The Wood Brothers with Katie Pruitt tonite at The Steddy Theater at the Center for the Arts.
The Wood Brothers
Dubbed “masters of soulful folk” by Paste, The Wood Brothers formed after brothers Chris and Oliver Wood pursued separate musical careers for 15 years. Chris already had legions of devoted fans for his incomparable work as one-third of Medeski Martin &Wood, while Oliver toured with Tinsley Ellis before releasing a half-dozen albums with his band King Johnson. With drummer Jano Rix added as a permanent third member, it’s become quite clear that The Wood Brothers is indeed the main act.
Singer, songwriter and musician Katie Pruitt is in the midst of a series of breakout years following her widely acclaimed, 2020 debut album, Expectations. Rolling Stone proclaimed, “A soaring vocalist and agile guitarist, Pruitt is a dynamic new presence.
Originally from the Atlanta suburbs and now based in Nashville, Pruitt has continued to receive widespread attention since her debut, having been highlighted as a Rolling Stone “Artist You Need To Know,” one of NPR Music’s “Slingshot: 20 Artists To Watch In 2019” and Southwest Magazine’s “Artists on the Rise. She has also been featured on NPR Music’s “Tiny Desk (Home) Concert” series as well as “CBS Mornings” performing as part of their Saturday Sessions series. Known for her powerful live performances, Pruitt will tour extensively through the end of this year including upcoming headline shows at Los Angeles’ The Hotel Café, Dallas’ Three Links, Washington DC’s DC9, New York’s Mercury Lounge and Nashville’s The Basement East among several others.
