Energetically honoring the sound of traditional bluegrass and mountain music, 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 (guitar), Galen Green (mandolin), Arthur Hancock (banjo), Roddy Puckett (bass), and Jesse Wells (fiddle), were born over some 20 years time somewhere between a high school snack bar, an Irish pub, the radio waves, 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.
Laid Back Country Picker
I'm just trying to play some good country music and treat everybody right.
Born and raised in Stanton, KY, nestled in the hills of the Red River Gorge, Chelsea Nolan is inseparable from the area in which she was raised and the music that surrounded her hometown. Playing music beside her big brother Josh from early on, she moved from piano to guitar to drums, never leaving music alone. Raised around a community of folks where “everybody’s somebody had at least one instrument”, she developed her drive for songwriting at parking lot jams on Tuesday nights and gatherings where folks told stories, laughed and always played music. High school found her with scholarship offers for marching bands, but she didn’t want let her passion become her work, “writing papers on quarter notes.”
