Album Review http://bit.ly/1d89Gvl
Wooden Horse play country blues and rattling slide based Americana. Originally founded 3 years ago by Jamie Knight (lead vocals, guitar, stomp) and Ben Church (slide guitar, harmonica, vocals) – they honed their sound into a tight and exuberant blues. Now Stuart Mcilroy has signed up on Piano duties. He has supported and played with the likes of Carl Perkins and Bill Lee Riley and adds a boogie style to the band that is guaranteed to get you up and moving.

Wooden Horse News….So as we ride on into summer we have some exciting news to report. We’ll be supporting the great Joan Armatrading for 3 dates of her national tour in October and November. Please see the Events section for more details. We strongly recommend you get to one of these shows – she is most certainly worth watching and these shows are intimate gigs which she is calling her ‘final major tour.’ Better be quick!
As well as this we have some cracking nights coming up. Stuart will be joining us for most of these on Piano duties and there are still a few that we will do as a duo – we love both setups and you are in for a top night either way.
Coming up we have ‘Roots around the World’ at the Chichester Inn (looks very tasty) and then an evening at the Artrix in Bromsgrove. In July we are on the road again with Gigs in St David’s Hall, Cardiff and Maryport Blues festival. We are also really looking forward to going back to Carlisle for a gig at the King’s Head. A wonderful pub with a top bunch of staff and patrons.

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.
