Bluegrass/Newgrass // For Fans of: Infamous Stringdusters, Del McCoury, Sam Bush, Bela Fleck, & Mandolin Orange

Something downright mystical is happening on Colorado’s Front Range. The very roots of traditional acoustic music seem to sprout from the dirt, shaking their dust into the winds of change, to be breathed in and become the soul of musicians who craft their songs here. Such is the music of Wood Belly.

The quintet won the Telluride Bluegrass Festival band competition in 2018 and has since spread branches all over the country. A Wood Belly song has its own lyrical persona and masterful arrangement; rooted in bluegrass tradition and planted solidly in contemporary innovation.

Taylor and Chris once had an epic Cheez Ball eating contest and Taylor was the clear winner.

Wood Belly is:

Chris Weist – Mandolin, Vocals
Aaron McCloskey – Banjo, Vocals
Tom Knowlton – Guitar, Vocals
Taylor Shuck – Upright Bass, Vocals
Chris Zink – Dobro, Vocals
