The Wooks

UnitedHealthcare Singer Songwriter Stage 

Capturing a moment, and a place — its past, people, and terrain within a song, The Wooks harness the rich musical and storytelling traditions of Kentucky into a new, old sound that embraces both string-music heritage and rock ‘n roll, jam, and singer-songwriter influences. Since 2014, the band, CJ Cain (leadguitar, vocals), Harry Clark (mandolin, vocals), Arthur Hancock (lead vocals, guitar), and Roddy Puckett (bass, vocals) have delivered a raw, boot stomping, sing-along to every song, good-time bluegrass show, “…with improv-savvy interplay that endears the band to jam music fans and bluegrass traditionalists alike,” according to the Lexington Herald-Leader. Since their inception in late 2014 The Wooks have won the 2016 Rocky Grass Band Competition, placed in the finals for the 2017 Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Competition, were a 2017 IBMA Momentum Award Nominee, and were selected a 2018 IBMA Official Showcase Artist. Their first record, Little Circles, recorded at Compass Studios and produced by Alison Brown, was #5 for the year on the Roots Music Report Progressive Bluegrass chart, and debuted at #6 on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart.
