The Woodshedders are Dwayne Brooke on guitar and vocals, Ryan Mayo on upright bass and piano, Jesse Shultzaberger on drums, and David Van Deventer on fiddle. “We love all kinds of music, so that’s what kind we play.”
The Woodshedders have played a bunch of fun shows this part year including Red Wing Roots Music Festival, Deep Roots Mountain Revival, Bristol Rhythm & Roots Festival, Mountain Stage New Song Fest, Kingman Island Bluegrass Festival, PBS Song of the Mountains, The U.S. State Department’s Fourth of July Picnic, Opera House LIVE!, The Hamilton, Confluence Festival, WAMU’s Capital Americana, The Jefferson Theater, and a monthly residency at Hill Country BBQ DC. They are the also the host band of Virginia’s Watermelon Park Fest.
“As Americana shape-shifters, the Woodshedders deftly move between various styles of roots music. The five-piece string band first formed out of a weekly gypsy-jazz gig in Harpers Ferry, but on its third album, “Wildfire,” the group reveals a much broader range of influences.”
