Meet the Band
Wire and Wool are a seven-piece Scottish band who have been described as ‘Full on bluegrass punk and roots revival heaven’. They came together in Dundee in 2014 from a wide range of origins and musical styles and have been gaining notoriety for their energetic sets and fired up sessions ever since.
Drawing on their diverse influences, from bluegrass to roots, through jazz to blues and Scottish music, they played in 2015 to enthusiastic crowds at events such as the Southern Fried Festival in Perth, the Glasgow Merchant City Festival, and the Insider Festival Strathspey Safari at Aviemore; they also drew a large crowd to the Birnam Arts Centre in August, and played support for the Peatbog Faeries and Californian bluegrass giants Front Country. In October they toured Skye along with the Dirty Beggars.
2016 will see them play Celtic Connections, the Eden festival, the Cupar Arts festival, the Kelburn Garden Party and the La Roche festival in the Alps, as well as launching their first studio album in July.
Working hard at present to earn their place in the Scottish music scene, Wire and Wool are creating a bit of anarchy at the same time, pushing the boundaries of the bluegrass genre with original songs and tunes, plus blistering renditions of old favourites.
