LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 24, 2018) – On June 23 The Burl welcomed back Austin, Texas-based progressive bluegrass foursome Wood & Wire with local support from singer-songwriter Andrew Hibbard. The show was the third for Wood & Wire at the near two-year-old Lexington venue following performances in February 2017 with Trucker Hat Coalition and June 2017 with Restless Leg String Band.
However, this time around the group brought with them a new album titled North of Despair, out April 13 via Blue Corn Music. With new music in toe the same Wood & Wire remained, equipped with tight harmonies and fiery picking.
