In a career chock full of highlights, The Wood Brothers hold a special place in their hearts for their performances at Levon Helm’s legendary Midnight Ramble. As repeat special guests at Helm’s famed Woodstock barn, the trio – guitarist Oliver Wood, bassist Chris Wood, and drummer Jano Rix – developed a cherished friendship with the late icon that transcended simple musical collaboration and left an indelible mark on their songs and their lives. That shared history made it all the more emotional when The Wood Brothers returned to the barn on Aug. 19, 2016, for their first Ramble since Helm’s passing. Captured pristinely on their new album, Live At The Barn, the band’s sold-out performance that night spanned their career and showcased the kind of singularly eclectic and electrifying performance style that’s earned them devoted legions of fans around the world.
Dori Freeman is a singer and songwriter from Galax, Va. Her music blurs the finer lines of Americana and shines new light on the legacy of traditional music, as she brings a modern and honest perspective – both lyrically and vocally – to the genre. Her summer 2017 itinerary includes the Red Wing Roots Music Festival in Mount Solon, Va.; Pickathon in Happy Valley, Ore.; and her second performance at Lime Kiln, where she made her debut last July. Freeman will follow up 2016’s critically acclaimed self-titled studio album with her sophomore LP this October.
