Friday, May 26, 6-8pm EDT: Wire in the Wood
Wire in the Wood is a prog-bluegrass locomotive pulling a lonesome psych-folk boxcar and a swingin' Hot-Club caboose. Billy Kirst's drama-infused original compositions meld with an eclectic selection of traditional swing and folk covers to create the tracks for this kinetic train. In the tradition of improvisational music, each performance seizes the moment, with detours and derailments around every bend.
Consisting of Billy Kirst (vocals, guitar), Jordan Adema (violin), Ryan Shea (bass, vocals), and Michael Spaly (mandolin, vocals). Wire in the Wood has haunted string-band venues large and small throughout Michigan over the last decade, including the Ark, Earthwork Harvest Gathering, Holler Fest, and the Founders Taproom. Our debut album All Fall Apart was released in 2017. Former members include Kyle Rhodes (mandolin, vocals) and Greg Burns (bass, vocals).
