The Aladdin Theater, 3017 SE Milwaukie, is bringing two superb blues and roots acts together for one special night on Friday, February 8th, as The Wood Brothers and Seth Walker will both take stage in this outstanding double-headed bill.
Oliver Wood (guitar, vocals) and Chris Wood (bass, vocals, harmonica) decided to form band, adapting the blues, folk and other roots‐music sounds they loved as kids into their own evocative sound and twining their voices in the sort of high‐lonesome harmony blend for which sibling singers are often renowned. After fifteen years of pursuing their own separate projects, they joined forces as The Wood Brothers in 2004 and have since released five CDs and toured consistently around the country.
The driving delivery and infectious down-home style of Seth Walker’s voice and songs resonate with Blues and Roots music. Although he is heavily influenced by guitar players – B.B. King, T-Bone Walker and Snooks Eaglin to name just a few – Seth also has a great gift for songwriting in the blues idiom. Seth has honed his skills for the last ten years in Austin, TX, playing among the best blues musicians in the world.
Showtime for this great evening of entertainment is 8:00 pm. Tickets are $18 advance and $20 day of show and available through www.ticketfly.com. Minors are permitted when accompanied by a parent or guardian.
