On Saturday April 3 at 8:00pm, the Hurdy Gurdy Folk Music Club Concert Series at the Fair Lawn Community Center will present Woods Tea Company. Opening the evening will be Mike Agranoff.

Woods Tea Company is an acoustic group that performs fiery Celtic tunes, bluegrass,sea shanties, and American folk songs with ease and skill. All four members are fine vocalists and audiences often leave in awe of their wonderful harmonies. During a performance they use as many as a dozen different instruments.

After building a solid reputation in New England, Woods Tea Company started touring on the concert circuit nationwide, eventually playing in all the lower 48 states. Notable performances include New Yorkʼs Lincoln Center (twice), the Chautauqua Institute (three times), appearances on PBS and National Public Radio, who labeled them "Vermont's hardest working folk group." A few years ago, the Irish Heritage Foundation honored the group with their "Outstanding Innovation Award, in appreciation and recognition for their creative contributions to Irish music."

Woods Tea Company recently welcomed singer-songwriter Patti Casey as the seventh permanent member of the Woods Tea Co. since 1981. Patti has appeared live on "A Prairie Home Companion" with Garrison Keillor, has won Texasʼs prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk songwriter's competition, and was a winner of the Chris Austin Songwriting Contest at the legendary Merlefest in Wilkesboro, North Carolina. Patti also brings her skills on the Guitar, Penny Whistle, Flute and is a French- Canadian Clogger.

Opening the evening will be New Jersey folk music icon Mike Agranoff. Mike is a one-man folk festival, playing fingerstyle guitar in idioms ranging from ancient harp tunes to obscure Tin-Pan-Alley compositions. His concertina arrangements of music by anyone from Bach to Berryman's may be haunting, complex, exciting, but are, above all, musical. A performance might include a song of heart-stopping emotional impact, a Scott Joplin piano rag, an acapella Irish patter song sung to the melody of a mile-a-minute fiddle tune, a rivetting recitation in the style of Robert Service, and some of the most horrible parodies in the English speaking world. Whatever else he does, Mike puts a lie to the notion that folk music is boring.

The Fair Lawn Community Center is located at 10-10 20th Street in Fair Lawn, NJ. Tickets for this concert are only $20 ($17 for Hurdy Gurdy members) and can be purchased online at www.hurdygurdyfolk.org or at the box office at the Fair Lawn Community Center on the night of the concert.

Additional information can be received at the website or by calling the Hurdy Gurdy Hotline at (201) 384-1325.
