Wood Belly and The Two Tracks will open the 32nd season of WYO – Sheridan Media

The WYO Performing Arts and Education Center has announced that it will open its 2022-2023 season with local favorites The Two Tracks and 2018 Telluride Bluegrass Festival winner Wood Belly beginning at 7 p.m. on Friday, September 23.

Wood Belly, is a musical collective composed of Chris Weist (mandolin), Tom Knowlton (guitar), Chris Zink (dobro), Aaron McCloskey (banjo) and Taylor Shuck (bass). The band has been garnering attention since releasing their debut album in 2018″solid earth,which was followed by a win at the prestigious Telluride Bluegrass Band Competition, as well as an IBMA Momentum Band of the Year 2018 nomination.

Julie and Dave Huebner of The Two Tracks, a local husband and wife duo from Sheridan, write songs that cross male and female perspective with emotional and natural images of rural American life. Julie’s driving rhythm guitar, onstage enthusiasm and vocal prowess dance perfectly with Dave’s rich voice and unique cello playing, adding a layer of surprise to the band’s sound that touches on lonely bluegrass and vintage country vibes while finding yourself in a world all its own thanks to the four-part harmonies and rock-solid groove filled by Taylor Phillps on bass and Fernando Serna on drums. The band have spanned the country bringing their joyful and unique sound to stages large and small, including their first international trip this year, traveling to Dubai for performances at the World Expo. The Two Tracks have opened for artists such as Orville Peck, Eilen Jewell, Kitchen Dwellers, Black Lillies and Horseshoes & Hand Grenades.

The WYO invites the Sheridan community to kick off the season with the WYO, Wood Belly and The Two Tracks on September 23.
