Energetically honoring the sound of traditional bluegrass and mountain music, with threads of singer-songwriter, rock, and jam band music woven throughout, The Wooks are as at home on a festival stage as they are in a barn in the heart of Kentucky’s horse country. The Wooks: CJ Cain (guitar), Galen Green (mandolin), Arthur Hancock (banjo), Roddy Puckett (bass), and Jesse Wells (fiddle), were born over some 20 years time somewhere between a high school snack bar, an Irish pub, the radio waves, and a festival jam circle.Inspired by legends and trailblazers like Crowe, Whitley, Simpson, Bush, Stapleton, and Rice who cut their teeth on stages throughout the Bluegrass Region, The Wooks translate the sights and sounds of the people, hills, bars, roads, and creeks around them into songs and shows that captivate.With both respect for their heritage and innovative originality, The Wooks are the natural evolution of a sound that has always been there.
What folks have said:
“The Wooks are not your average Wooks, they are thoroughbred grazing in the bluegrass Wooks. On little circles, these fellas really have done a fine job. Excellent pickin’, singin’ and song selection is what you’ll get from the Wooks!” — Ronnie McCoury, the Del McCoury band / Travellin’ McCourys
“I love the Wooks. with one foot in Kentucky bluegrass and the other in a galaxy far, far away, they are post modern grassers at heart, delivering song after song full of infectious energy, tremendous musicality and flat out joy.” — Alison Brown, Compass records
Vintage southern folk, bluegrass, and country band, Little Country Giants, bring America’s heartland to audiences across America. Gathering accolades, like a magnet gathers iron filings, the unique sound of the Little Country Giants draws audiences and nurtures fans.
Hailing from the foothills of northwest Georgia, the Little Country Giants are outgrowing their southeastern roots like kudzu. In two short years, the band has gone from playing small local festivals and noisy barrooms, to two- story theaters, acclaimed singer-songwriter listening rooms, and main stage performance slots at some of the region’s largest music festivals. The Little Country Giants are the heart and soul of songwriting duo Russell Dallas Cook, guitarist/ vocalist, and Cameron Federal Cook, upright bassist/ vocalists, from Rome, Georgia.
