Out of the Woods is an earthy, wires and wood, mostly acoustic program featuring some of the best new and established artists from the worlds of folk, bluegrass, singer-songwriters,, Americana, classic country, old-time, Celtic, and everything that falls in between. The show is an unpredictable mix flowing like a river between moods, often with an edge or in a melancholy minor key. On occasion, Out of the Woods features interviews and live in-studio performances with national and international touring musicians. Past guests have included artists such as Bela Fleck, Si Kahn, Brown Bird, Dana Robinson, Steve Gillette & Cindy Mangsen, Bill Bourne, Karl Shiflett, Rachel Bissex, Darryl Purpose, Bow Thayer, Cosy Sheridan and many others. Out of the Woods grew out of Jon 'Chip' Colcord's former acoustic programs, The Song Swap and Music For The Mountain, separate folk and bluegrass programs which aired in New Hampshire during the 1990s. As a child, Colcord grew up a ravenous music fan with an ear for both rock and folk, from Arlo Guthrie to Aerosmith. All of these influences converge on Out of the Woods to bring you a mix which is as much on the edge as it is down home. Folk music with a rock 'n' roll soul
As a bit of celebration for the 200th episode of Out of the Woods, I opted
this week to find many of the louder songs and host the first-ever Out of
the Woods 'LOUD' show! It features many of the same folks I typically play
on the show, but with a significantly louder, electric edge. I hope to make
this an occasional feature, as I am always coming across great, but heavier
music mixed into otherwise mostly acoustic records that I would love to
play on the show, which just don't fit with the typical Out of the Woods,
mostly-acoustic format. Some news releases here in the mix, plus some old
favorites as well. Consider this a 'cleansing of the palate' following last
week's Pete Seeger theme show...
