Wood Family in Farmington Friday

Published 10:01 am Thursday, November 16, 2017

Farmington Community Center will host the Wood Family Tradition bluegrass band Friday, Nov. 17.

Wood Family Tradition brings more than 80 years of combined experience in the bluegrass and bluegrass gospel genre. Family values, legacy, faith, and humor are a few things that Wood Family brings as a newly formed family band.

Music, however, is nothing new to this family. Stemming from the legacy of hard driving, traditional, and original bluegrass music that the legendary banjoist/singer/songwriter Al Wood began in the 60s, the members of this band were raised on a strict diet of bluegrass and bluegrass gospel music.

Members are Mike Wood on guitar, Bobby Wood on bass, Mike’s wife, Joanie, on vocals, their son, Jason, on mandolin, and his wife, Mackenzie, on vocals with Chris Bryant on banjo.

The Wood Family released their first album in January of 2015, containing 13 tracks of bluegrass material, most written by members of the family. Their album and other merchandise and information, can be found at www.woodfamilytradition.com.

Music starts at 7.  Hamburgers and hotdogs will be sold starting at 6  with proceeds going to help pay bills at the center.  There is a $6 charge at the door.
