Alongside artists like Old Crow Medicine Show and Pokey LaFarge, Woody Pines continues to forage thru the secret world of old 78ʹs and to write new chapters in the Anthology of American Music. Integrating sounds from Leadbelly to Bob Dylan, from Woody Guthrie to Preservation Hall, Woody Pines belts out songs of fast cars, pretty women and hard luck with a distinctive vintage twang.
Recently signing with Nashville’s Muddy Roots Music for the release of the much-anticipated new record and the subsequent release of Woody’s four independent releases has this band working hard in the studio, on the road, and on the songwriting frontline.
Woody was a founding member of the Kitchen Syncopators, a legendary busking street jug-band from Eugene, OR, that were one of the most exciting acts to emerge out of the West Coast folk scene in recent history.
Since the Kitchen Syncopators disbanded years ago, Woody Pines has been writing and recording albums and frequently performing for audiences everywhere, while co-founder of the band, Gill Landry, has gone on to join Old Crow Medicine Show while pursuing his own solo projects.
The distinctive viper sound is brought together with Skip Frontz Jr. on the upright bass, adding both the booty shakin’, low-end and rapid fire percussion with his sought after slap technique that has blown people away night after night. Brad Tucker on the vintage electric guitar and vocal harmonies fills out the trio, working his magic to make the band sound bigger then they are. Woody plays the National Guitar, Harmonica and Floor Tom, Singing in a voice sounding uncannily like a young Willie Nelson.
Robert Bobby became hooked on folk music when his brother turned him on to Bob Dylan’s Free Wheeling album in his early teens. He has been a staple of the Central Pennsylvania music scene going back to his days as lead singer for The Speedboys, and has been favorably reviewed by music critics in Rolling Stone, The Village Voice, Sing Out!, and numerous other publications. He is a singer/songwriter known for his clever way with words, his quirky sense of humor, his “money” voice and his ability to connect with an audience. Musically, he is a pioneer in the unified theory of eclecticism.
Mrs. Bobby is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma. She figured the best way to keep an eye on Mr. Bobby was to join the band so she learned to play the bass around the time her AARP membership arrived in the mail. She is an inspiration to anyone who has ever wished they could learn to play a musical instrument. The York County native brings her love of roots music to the mix and a joy that is evident in her performance. Above all, she's Mrs. Bobby.
Together, The Robert Bobby Duo is a perfect blend of folk, singer-songwriter, Americana, and blues: witty, funny, fresh yet familiar. The duo’s sound has been shaped by the varied influences of their youth when Motown and Memphis soul were played on the radio along with the singer-songwriters of the 60’s and 70’s, The British invasion, California and Nashville sounds.
