Wood & Wire: “Rambler’s Blues”
The group consists of mandolin player Matt Slusher (who was a founding member of the South Austin Jug Band), Dom Fisher on bass and Tony Kamel on guitar. Wood & Wire officially formed in October 2011, but the three have known each other for quite some time through the intricate webs of the bluegrass scene. Slusher met Kamel during a 2009 jam at the Old Settlers fest in 2009, and Kamel plays with Fisher in other bluegrass groups like My Pet Possum and Flatiron.
Wood & Wire doesn’t have an official release yet, but they’ve recorded a handful of tracks that show off their energy in the live setting. Today’s song of the day is a tune called “Rambler’s Blues.” It’s a fast-paced, bouncy number that should definitely get a Cactus Cafe crowd on their feet.
