The Chaffee New Music Series continues with Woody Pines 

Thursday, April 5, 7 p.m.—RUTLAND—International recording artist and performer Woody Pines will be performing live at the Chaffee Arts Center in Rutland on Thursday, April 5. Starting at 7 p.m., Pines makes his Chaffee debut with a solo performance. This will be the second installment of a new music series at The Chaffee, that will continue the first Thursday of each month.

Woody Pines is gonzo folk music, the kind of raise-the-rafters, boot-shakin’ jump blues that used to be banging out of juke joints all over the South in the late 1940s, but now it’s burning into the earholes of a younger generation of Nashville kids, all looking for music with deep roots and something to hang on to.

When Woody Pines sings the lyrics, “When the train rolls by, I get a faceful of rain,” he isn’t some hipster dilettante twisting a faux-handlebar mustache and singing about old-timey railroads; he is a dedicated student of Woody Guthrie who used to hop freight trains to get from town to town. This is serious roots music that’s as much a way of life as an aesthetic choice.

Tickets are $10. This event is all ages. For more information, visit chaffeeartcenter.org.
