Folklore Society Happenings
Wood will be guest at November 12 Song & Story Swap
Please come share in an evening of music and stories at the November
Pioneer Valley Folklore
Society SONG & STORY SWAP.
Friday, November 12,
7:30-9:30 p.m. at the Black Sheep Café, 79 Main
St., Amherst, Mass.
Featured artist at the November 12 Song & Story Swap will
be guitarist, percussionist and singer-songwriter, Laura Wood.
Trained in music at Skidmore College, Laura made her
professional debut at the storied Café Lena in Saratoga Springs as a
19-year-old, and went on to study vocal jazz at Umass. Settling in
Northampton, she entitled her first CD Summit House in tribute to
the scenic shelter atop Mt. Skinner in Hadley.
Laura Wood's songwriting and guitar work have drawn comparisons to k.d.
lang, Leo Kottke and Joni Mitchell. In addition to headlining at several
of the Northeast's top music halls such as the Iron Horse and Club
Passim, she is a veteran of numerous festivals including Lilith Fair,
Rockgrl Music Conference and the National Women's Festival. Laura
has recently toured to promote her second CD, South Station Slide,
recorded locally at the Signature Sounds studio.
More information about Laura Wood may be found at her web site,
