Woody Mann’s upcoming 2020 UK tour dates. We are offering two shows; Woody’s solo show and his “American Roots and Beyond“ film screening & performance show.
“..don’t miss a chance to see him; you are unlikely to hear anything – or anyone – better in the field Mann has chosen to master.”- The Times.
“Woody Mann is a New Yorker who plays an enticing mix of American acoustic roots, blues and jazz, He plays with passion and a deep sensitivity to his original music with an easy, laid-back style. He’s a sublime singer, warm, witty and a hugely talented singer/songwriter and a legend in the guitar world.”- BBC radio review 2017
The “AMERICAN ROOTS AND BEYOND” show package features a film screening of his award winning feature documentary “Harlem Street Singer”,the story of the blind American blues guitarist/singer Reverend Gary Davis. An amazing character and unique guitar maestro who taught Woody how to play guitar. A performance follows the screening. “American Roots & Beyond” promo brief
We will be supporting the tour with press articles, radio appearances and local media coordination.
Please contact us for full details on both of these exciting shows.
Having studied, literally, at the feet of the Rev. Gary Davis and other blues ‘greats,’ Woody has taken the music and evolved it into his own highly personal, energized approach while practicing his teachers gift for telling powerful stories in the song form.” –Boston Globe
“ Mann blurs the lines between jazz, blues, classical, and world music creating his own sound in the process. His wizardry on the fret board is matched by his ability to convey deep feelings with his songs – creating moods that incite, delight, or simply soothe. Attempts to categorize his music simply misses the point. This is brilliant playing that demands to be heard.”– SING OUT! MAGAZINE, USA
“Every now and then, you hear a guitarist whose sound is completely his own and whose music flirts with several styles, never resting for very long with just one. What is remarkable is how Woody can draw from several styles and techniques within a single song and have them blend without the feeling of inconsistency. Woody Mann’s performance is inspired from start to finish. – MUSICIAN MAGAZINE
“With impeccable tone, gutsy phrasing, beautiful harmonies, and cool dynamics, Mann is in a class by himself. Phenomenal.” “Stairwell Serenade” CD Voted top ten “Guitar recordings of Destiny.” – GUITAR PLAYER MAGAZINE
