Rocky Mountain Highway is thrilled to present an evening with The Wooks, winner of the 2016 RockyGrass Band Competition!
Energetically honoring the sound of traditional bluegrass and mountain music, with threads of singer-songwriter, rock and jam band music woven throughout, The Wooks are as at home on a festival stage as they are in a barn in the heart of Kentucky’s horse country. The Wooks are CJ Cain (guitar), Galen Green (mandolin), Arthur Hancock (banjo), Roddy Puckett (bass), and Jesse Wells (fiddle). Born over some 20 years’ time somewhere between a high school snack bar, an Irish pub, the radio waves, and a festival jam circle, The Wooks are inspired by legends and trailblazers like J.D. Crowe, Keith Whitley, Sam Bush, Chris Stapleton and Tony Rice. The Wooks translate the sights and sounds of the people, hills, bars, roads and creeks around them into songs and shows that captivate. With both respect for their heritage and innovative originality, The Wooks are the natural evolution of a sound that has always been there.
