“This Kind Of Trouble”. It’s a wonderful album in every way!” Hans Theessink
Wooden Horse play blues, well country blues, or maybe Americana – don’t know. Anyhow they certainly love playing it and the ingredients of Slide Guitar, Stomp Box, Banjo and Harmonica laced with Harmonies make up a mighty tempting musical feast. www.facebook.co/woodenhorse.roots
The wet weather has done nothing to stop Wooden Horse, in fact September / October has been really wonderful so far. We have had fantastic gigs at Huntingdon Hall (Worcs), The Met (Bury), The Prince of Wales (Ledbury) and Winchcome Live – to name but a few.Our great friend Stuart Mcilroy has joined us on most of these gigs and the turn out and enthusiasm from those that attended has been fantastic. It really makes us play so much better when there’s a good crowd and we do appreciate it – so please keep on coming!
Our latest gig was at the very tasty Winchcombe Live organised by a terrific blues enthusiast Dave Wade – he is putting on a great monthly blues show over there, do try and get along. He kindly said this about the night:
“What a night from Wooden Horse. Good attendance, fantastic musicianship, and good rapport with our biggest crowd yet. Stu added to what’s performed online with his brilliant keyboard skills, and Ben’s slide is creamy, dramatic, edgy and controlled, vocals incisive with spot on harmonies. Jamie leads with driving rhythm and emotive vocals. Audience from Scotland, New Zealand, Albuquerque (New Mexico) Kent and Leamington Spa!”
The new album ‘This Kind of Trouble’ is of course available from our web site in CD format and digitally at Amazon / Itunes / Google / Cd baby etc. so please do get it touch if you want a copy – remember - THESE MAKE GREAT CHRISTMAS PRESENTS!
We are back into the rehearsal room this month, no time to stand still and we are constantly adding tunes that you won’t have heard before.
See you out there,
Ben and Jamie
The New Wooden Horse Album
“This Kind Of Trouble” Blues for the spirit and soul from Wooden Horse good honest music. Neil King, FATEA.
“There’s the same authentic feel of the debut with lead singer Jamie Knight’s careworn vocals adding that touch of true touch of pain that real country blues demands and Ben Church painting in the background colours with some typically fine slide guitar playing”. The Baron, The Hearing Aid.
A BIG DEAL” Drags you in by the scruff of the neck the rest of the songs hold you tight and the last song “Kicks you out trying to back in for more. Warwick Ledsham.
