The Woedoggies have an eclectic sound firmly rooted in classic country, blues and Americana. With an arsenal of originals and an extensive repertoire of classic country, blues, and folk covers, the Woedoggies mix tight three-part harmonies with expert musicianship and strong songwriting to discover new horizons of the acoustic Americana sound.
Based in northern Vermont, the Woedoggies consist of Vermont music veterans Peter Riley on bass and vocals (Breakaway and The X-Rays), Rudy Dauth on lead guitar and vocals (Pulse Prophets) and Wylie Shipman on rhythm guitar, harmonica and vocals.
The band's first record ‘Sorrytown' reflects their wide-ranging influences from bluegrass to classic country to loud, growling blues. Liz Cantrell, of Seven Days, points out how contemporary country bands are so influenced by pop and rock music and therefore it can be difficult to find the real twang of old acoustic country music. Luckily, she says, ‘Sorrytown' “offers some honky tonk relief” and explains that Woedoggies is “a group of older crooners who eschew the flash of modern styles in favor of classic, acoustic country and light bluegrass.” The album was produced by Jared Slomoff (Mike Gordon, Phish) and featuring Russ Lawton on drums, captures the raw energy and dynamic range of a live Woedoggies performance.
