“This Kind Of Trouble”. It’s a wonderful album in every way!” Hans Theessink
Album Review http://bit.ly/1d89Gvl
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
We’ve packed away our Wooden Horse Christmas jumpers, finished the last of the booze left over from New Years and now it is time to get back on the road. The end of 2013 was great for us and 2014 looks like it is going to really exciting. We’ve had a few nice things said about us in the music press.
Classic Rock Blues magazine had ‘This Kind of Trouble’ in their ‘Top 50 blues albums list for 2013’ and on theirBest of 2013 cover CD. About the album they wrote:‘…a stunning set of rootsy Americana and rattle-and-buzz country-blues…’
Blues in the North-West have us top of a list of 10 releases they enjoyed most in 2013…http://www.bluesinthenorthwest.com/index.php/2014/01/11/review-of-the-year-grahame-rhodes-part-1/
This year’s gig list is looking good so far…with things really kicking off in March. We’ve quite a few new self-penned tunes we want to work on right now…we can’ wait to let you hear them.
2+1 makes Wooden Horse? As a few of you have noticed, we’ve got a great Piano player accompanying us at many of our gigs these days. Mr Stuart McIlroy. So sometimes we are a trio sometimes a duo…either way you are guaranteed a top night if you come to see us.
See you out there,
Ben and Jamie (and Stu!).
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.
