Notes

The music of The Woods Band is an eclectic and electric mix of Irish folk songs, some old, but a whole lot brand new. According to founder, Terry Woods, the sound is comparable to Sweeney's Men meet's The Dubliners meet's The Pogues! The original Woods Band was formed in 1970 when Woods left Steeleye Span. The band recorded one album. Fast forward to the summer of 2001 Terry reforms the band with friend and side-kick Dave Browne. The Woods Band is fronted by 22 year old Dubliner Shane Martin, formerly a member of the band Reel. Woods who is also a member of The Pogues has had a long career in music with various bands since the 60's.
