The Wood Brothers: Stealin' @ the Mountain View Stage Pickathon 2012
The Wood Brothers perform a traditional tune called "Stealin'" at this year's Pickathon Festival at Pendarvis farm in Happy Valley, Oregon, just outside of Portland. The Wood Brothers are Oliver Wood, formerly of King Johnson, Chris Wood, bassist of the world renowned jazz/jam/experimental trio MMW (Medeski, Martin, and Wood), and percussionist Jano Rix. This tune features all three current members singing harmonies and Jano playing the "Shitar," which basically explains itself if you dig the video. From a percussionist's viewpoint Jano's creation is about as cool and creative as it gets. Hope ya likes.
