SUNDAY 10TH NOVEMBER 2013
And to conclude the festival another great act returning to Woodend, Rod Picott, who also has a new album out and who I think is a fabulous song writer. The son of a welder from rural New England, Rod is a masterful songwriter and soulful singer who carries with him as fine a suitcase of songs as you'll find anywhere. Slaid Cleaves, Ray Wylie Hubbard and Fred Eagelsmith have recorded Rod Picott songs. A former construction worker who hung up his tools when he released his debut CD in 2000, Picott has carved a career for himself with a run of 6 beautifully crafted self-released CDs over the last 13 years and a well-earned reputation as an engaging, emotion fuelled performer. Supporting Rod will be Alan Tennie who is rightly making quite a reputation for himself and who has just released his first EP.
