The duo Woodrow, based in Bushkill, PA, performs a variety of familiar classic rock, folk, and country tunes featuring songs from artists such as Fleetwood Mac, The Grateful Dead, Tom Petty, Janis Joplin, Merle Haggard, and more. Our fan base frequents wineries, breweries, pubs, tasting rooms, small bars and coffee houses as well as larger outdoor festivals. We make a great addition to any private party or event. We can also frequently be seen supporting our local community and arts scene by performing at community festivals, art shows, and non-profit events.
Guitarist and vocalist Brian Bramkamp's spacey-blues leads are inspired by greats such as Jerry Garcia, Eric Clapton, Warren Haynes, and David Gilmore. Brian also writes the music and lyrics for all of of the original tunes on Woodrow's upcoming album “Way Out in the Weeds”.
Vocalist Theresa Ratliff takes the lead on most of Woodrow's cover tunes and originals. Theresa's vocal career started in musical theater at the age of 11 (although her mother will tell you she popped out singing!), but her passion has always been Rock and Blues. She takes her inspiration from strong female vocalists like Janis Joplin, Grace Potter, and Stevie Nicks and who fearlessly broke into the “boy's club” of rock's lead singers.
Woodrow also performs regularly with the Juggernaut String Band, with Brian on guitar and vocals and Theresa on vocals, ukulele, and percussion along with band leader Peter Taney on banjo, fiddle, and harmonica, Carolyn “Cat” Burbage on drums and bass, and Vid Ryan on bass and percussion. This power-folk band's repetroire and line-up easily adapts to any size venue, and frequently features a rotating cast of other musicians. With a focus on FUN, the Juggernaut String Band performs a wide variety of music including covers of classic rock, folk, bluegrass, country songs, parade and sing-along songs, as well as original music.
