Charlie Hunter and Lucy Woodward w/ Keita Ogawa @ Ambrose West 7-20-2019
Charlie Hunter and Lucy Woodward are known for excelling in different genres, yet the two veteran musicians have been running in similar circles before pairing up for touring in 2018.
With a career spanning 26 years and almost 20 albums, virtuoso guitarist Charlie Hunter has worked with the likes of Norah Jones, Mos Def, John Mayer, and D’Angelo. He is widely considered the authority on the seven and eight – string guitar, and continues to stun audiences with his ability to simultaneously bust out tasty bass parts, melodic leads and swinging rhythms.
Lucy Woodward made her major label debut in 2003. She has since recorded/toured with Rod Stewart, Snarky Puppy, Barbra Streisand, Celine Dion, Pink Martini, Chaka Khan and Carole King releasing 3 more albums along the way. Her latest studio effort was 2016’s “Til They Bang On The Door” released on the Snarky Puppy-owned GroundUP Music.
As for what to expect live from Hunter and Woodward, the two — as rounded out by a drummer — will be performing pocket-heavy renditions of vintage blues and classic vintage pop, covers of Nina Simone, The Animals, Bessie Smith and Terence Trent D’Arby included.
