The Wildwoods and The Ginny Mules at The Barley Street Tavern


Dec 8, 2017
09:00 PM until 12:00 PM


The Wildwoods and The Ginny Mules at The Barley Street Tavern
Ginny Mules The Wildwoods Ryan Human 9pm/$5/21+ Ginny Mules "Holy friggin' harmonies! It's almost distracting how good the vocals are on the Ginny Mules debut release" (Marquee Magazine, 2016). Recognized as finalists in the renowned Rockygrass Festival band competition in 2017, Ginny Mules are setting sail, and charting a course that is all their own. Drawing from varied elements of American music and heritage, each member brings their own blend of Appalachian music, Blues, Folk & Bluegrass to the table. The end result sounds a lot like BLUESGRASS, with a focus on tight vocal harmonies and the raw, bluesier elements that give Ginny Mules their distinctive sound. According to Copple, "it's like Bluegrass with a little extra stank on it." With their debut, self-titled album from 2016 garnering weekly spins on Bluegrass radio programs near and far, The Mules are setting their sights on a sophomore release full of original songs, scheduled for 2018! It's sure to follow the same roadmap as their debut, which includes signature instrumental work and unique original songs that carry the "high lonesome sound" into a new era. The band first began to coalesce when, Liz Forster (guitar and vocals) met Keenan Copple, the band’s banjo and slide guitar player at a Denver music store in 2013. The pair began playing music together almost immediately. Weekly jam nights with Keenan, Liz and Phil Hanceford (mandolin and vocals) materialized, and the trio began the epic quest for a bass player. On a friend's recommendation, they called on Carbondale native, Sheena Gruber. Forster says, "We caught a lucky break with Sheena. She plays terrific bass, looks and sings like Bonnie Raitt, and is a great fit for us vibe-wise." Rebekah Durham (Juilliard grad and former member of San Fermin), joined the band in 2016 and rounded out the official lineup of Ginny Mules with her incredible 5-string fiddling and original songwriting. With 4 out of 5 Mules writing songs for the band, and 5 out of 5 Mules working collaboratively on arrangements, their sound really is unique - though they do draw frequent (and flattering) comparisons to The Steeldrivers for their hard driving, bluesy and fiddle-forward stylings. Ginny Mules have shared the stage (or festival lineup) with many of their friends and heroes alike - including: The Steeldrivers, Wood and Wire, The Traveling McCoury's, Rapidgrass, Della Mae and Mipso (to name a few). Keep an eye out for these Mules as they venture out of Colorado and make their way to your town. As they like to say...Giddy up! #mule2ride The Wildwoods Nebraska natives, The Wildwoods, bring a pioneering sound to Americana Roots Music. Their heartwarming lyrics and vocals are wrapped in a style of music that is like no other. With influences from old time country masters and today’s Indie/Folk sound, The Wildwood’s nostalgic melodies captivate people of all ages. Andrew Stellman managing editor from Hear Nebraska wrote “There are perhaps few Nebraska acts that represent a merger of past and present quite like The Wildwoods, and if it’s taken you this long to notice, take the opening track of its new album Sweet Nostalgia. The young songwriting tandem of Chloe Pinkman and Noah Gose harmonize like something out of the Depression Era, fitted with a certain weight yet warmly and triumphantly capable of lifting hearts regardless.” Mallory Gruben, from HC Media Online reported, “The Wildwoods seemed to face no obstacle in gaining the full attention of the audience, receiving a standing ovation by the end of their second set.” Nominated in 2016 & 2017 by the Omaha Entertainment and Arts Awards as one of the best Americana/Folk bands in the area, The Wildwoods also prove to be talented songwriters. In 2016, The Wildwood’s song, "Dance With Me", made the semi-finals in the International Songwriting competition. Two of their songs also placed in the top 10 of the 2015 Omaha Performing Arts Songwriting Competition. In April 2017 The Wildwoods completed their third album “Sweet Nostalgia” which has been nominated as local Album of the Year by the Omaha Arts and Entertainment Awards. This is what Live on Hear Nebraska FM had to say about it: "Sweet Nostalgia" is the third release for this young five-piece folk act is alone admirable, were it not for the effortless charm and youthful whimsy they bring to classic Americana. The arm-in-arm camaraderie of “Loose Threads” bops and sways like a Randy Newman tune. “My Friend” swells with countryside imagery and ornate instrumentation, aided by the production prowess of ARC’s Ben Brodin. “Bedford Street” is a good old-fashioned hoe-down. And no matter how tearful or worrisome things seem, the turn is always hopeful: trust is endless, love is everlasting, the strings are always in tune and the sun is always shining. Sweet Nostalgia, indeed.” Residing in Lincoln, Nebraska, The Wildwoods' Noah Gose (vocals,guitar, harmonica, piano), Chloe Pinkman (vocals, violin, mandolin), and Noah Pinkman ( vocals, guitar, mandolin, uke) were drawn to music at an early age. In 2016 they added talented members, Matthew Sievert (percussion,vocals) and Andrew Vaggalis (Bass, vocals), to complete the band’s "nostalgic" sound. The Wildwoods strive to make music that touches the soul, music that speaks of truth, and music that shares inspiring stories of effortless love, that will be sure to melt your heart after every performance.
