The Wood Brothers, Shovels & Rope
Thursday May 18, 2023 07:30 PM EDT
Cost: $37.50 - $77.00
CL Critic Hal Horowitz Recommends: This striking bill features two Americana favorites, each of whom could take top billing. Clearly the Wood Brothers are the main attraction tonight due to Oliver Wood’s long history and strong ties to Atlanta in King Johnson and other outfits. The trio tours with a new album, Heart is the Hero, another winning entry in their idiosyncratic catalog of folk, jazz, country, pop and blues. The Shovels and Rope duo also features a stripped down sound, theirs leaning more towards indie rock with resilient country roots. — HH
