The Way Down Wanderers

Equal parts fast-paced and soulful, 5-piece modern-folk Americana act, The Way Down Wanderers, draw
listeners in with energy, originality and soulful generosity. Youthful and professionally trained, these young
men captivate audiences with soaring instrumentals, foot stomping sing-alongs and a lively stage show
and have created a buzz for themselves with their unplugged, off-stage encores and propensity for
performing self-titled, “restSTOMPS” - free acoustic sets at rest & truck stops along their tour routes. The
band’s debut album, produced by Mike Marsh of the Avett Brothers and recorded at Sonic Ranch in El
Paso TX, is available now, wherever music is sold.

With threads of singer-songwriter, rock, and jam band music woven throughout, The Wooks are as at home on a festival stage as they are in a barn in the heart of Kentucky's horse country. The Wooks: CJ Cain (Lead Guitar), Arthur Hancock (Guitar), Harry Clark (Mandolin), Roddy Puckett (Bass), George Wagman (Banjo) were born over some 20 years time somewhere between an Irish pub, a barbecue joint, and a festival jam circle.

Inspired by legends and trailblazers like Crowe, Whitley, Simpson, Bush, Stapleton, and Rice who cut their teeth on stages throughout the Bluegrass Region, The Wooks translate the sights and sounds of the people, hills, bars, roads, and creeks around them into songs and shows that captivate. With both respect for their heritage and innovative originality, The Wooks are the natural evolution of a sound that has always been there.

Since their inception in late 2014 The Wooks have been making noise in central Kentucky and beyond. The band won the prestigious 2016 RockyGrass Band Competition, placed in the finals for the 2017 Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Competition, and were a 2017 IBMA Momentum Award Nominee. Their first record, Little Circles, recorded at Compass Studios and produced by Alison Brown, debuted at #6 on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart.
