A Duke and a Duchess plus some musical Royalty visit Woodend Tennis and Bowling Club!
Firstly a big thanks to Rod Picott and Zoe Graham for a great show last night and to those who came along to see them another great night and we finish October in some real style with two great back to back shows.
I’m proud to announce that Woodend Bowling and Tennis Club will host a Duke and Duchess plus some musical Royalty on the 28th and 29th of October.
And as a very special offer to those at Woodend and on the Sounds Mailing List I am offering both gigs for £20, a significant saving on £12 for the Mastersons and £15 for Carrie Rodriquez and Luke Jacobs.
The Duke and Duchess in question are Chris Masterson and Eleanor Whitmore collectively known as the Mastersons who are a key part of Steve Earle’s backing band the Dukes and the Duchesses. They regularly open up for Steve when he tours and then become key elements of his backing band. Most recently they have also been supporting Justin Currie on his US tour. This will be their second visit to this venue where they wowed the audience on their last visit in 2012. This UK tour is to promote their new album Good Luck Charm and which follows on from their excellent debut album Birds Fly South. Previously inhabitants of New York the Mastersons have now relocated to Austin Texas.

Supporting The Mastersons will be Kat Healy who released her new EP 'When You Are Gone' in August to rave reviews.
Carrie Rodriquez and Luke Jacobs
Then the following evening the wonderful Carrie Rodriquez and partner Luke Jacobs perform at Woodend. Carrie Rodriquez is a well know star who has worked with a formidable set of stars. youtube.com/watch?
Rodriguez' journey from teenage violin student to touring the world with the likes of Chip Taylor (famed songwriter of "Wild Thing), Lucinda Williams and Alejandro Escovedo, has resulted in a prodigious output of recordings - eight albums in as many years - for the young musician.
Carrie’s extended musical family and friends, including John Hiatt/Nick Lowe/Ry Cooder/Jim Keltner (aka Little Village), Buddy Miller & Julie Miller, Gillian Welch & David Rawlings, Richard Thompson, Townes Van Zandt, M. Ward, Merle Haggard & Bonnie Owens, Hank Williams, and Lucinda Williams.
