This 2024, The Wood Brothers are ushering in a spring season of roots and folk-rock hymns to continue support for their latest album. After a sold-out series across the UK and Europe, the GRAMMY-nominated group will storm 19 cities from the West Coast to the Midwest, including a Moore Theatre performance on March 8 with special guests Rainbow Girls!
"It means so much to us to have our fans come back year after year and be so open and receptive to the music we present each evening," lead guitarist Oliver Wood said.
The band’s eighth studio album, Heart Is the Hero, dropped last April 14, 2023, gaining extensive praise from fans and critics alike. In order to capture the raw energy of their famed live performances, the group went old-school in production, recording ten organic and urgently honest songs on an analog 16-track tape.

Titular Wood Brothers Oliver and Chris joined forces with multi-instrumentalist Jano Rix to form a new-age act where blues, jazz, and gospel intermingle with fervent folk music. The band first saw charting success with their sophomore album, Loaded, though their continuous streak began with their fifth, The Muse. Peaking Top 3 in Billboard Heatseekers and Top 10 in Folk Albums, it featured bass-lined barroom ballads such as "I Got Loaded” and “Wastin’ My Mind.” Meanwhile, their follow-up albums Paradise and One Drop of Truth both claimed the top spot in Heatseekers, with the latter receiving a GRAMMY Award nomination for Best Americana Album. Showcasing The Wood Brothers’ harmony-rich inflections, the records included hit singles like “Singin' to Strangers” and “Seasick Emotions.”
Rainbow Girls Erin Chapin, Caitlin Gowdey, and Vanessa Wilbourn will open the show with tasty acoustic folk anthems most would come to love from their viral cover of “Down Home Girl.” The trio recently launched their sixth studio album, Welcome To Whatever, last December, featuring nostalgic hits like “City Slickers” and “Compassion to the Nth Degree.”
