WOOD WIRE AND WORDS are a three-piece family band from the south of England playing critically acclaimed Bluegrass/Folk/Americana inspired original material. They are:
David Rozzell – songwriter for the band, guitarist and lead vocalist
Clare Rozzell – harmony and lead vocals and double bass
Pat Francis – instrumentalist, playing Dobro, mandolin, guitar and banjo.
Clare is David’s wife and Pat’s daughter, so the expression “”family band”” is about right. They formed into a band in 2003/4 after they all felt that there was a musical idea and a sound that could be developed into something of their own.
In 2007 they released their first album – Riding The Rails, which has enjoyed great success, including a four-star review in Maverick Magazine and regular airplay on radio stations around the world. In May 2015 they released a second album – It’s A Barbecue Day. Both albums contain 12 original songs each.
Described by The Famous Willows Folk Club as a ‘Brilliant three-piece, who brought their usual instrumental excitement and awesome vocal harmonies to the stage, lighting up the room with the power and passion of their performance.’
Didmarton Bluegrass Festival: A band that quietly came and blew audiences away with their beautifully crafted original material and harmony singing. Clare and David Rozzell, with the help of seasoned Bluegrass boy, Pat Francis, just deliver, without fuss but with complete confidence. Absolutely fabulous music!
