Wildwoods To Perform In Barnesville On Thursday
BARNESVILLE — Skyflight Productions presents an evening with The Wildwoods on Thursday, July 29, at The Albert S. George Youth Center at Barnesville Memorial Park in Barnesville.
Nebraska natives, The Wildwoods, a band from Lincoln, bring a pioneering sound to Americana Roots Music. Formed in 2012, The Wildwoods released their first album, “A Little Sweeter” in 2014 and have since released three more albums independently: “Take A Chance” (2016), “Sweet Nostalgia” (2017) and their newest album “Across A Midwest Sky” (2019).
The two lead vocalists of the group, Noah and Chloe Gose, also released a Duo EP titled “Birdie and Goose” in late 2017. Following the successful release of their album, “Sweet Nostalgia”, the Wildwoods have opened for touring bands such as Elephant Revival, The Hunts, The Accidentals, The Von Trapps and Jamie Wyatt. The two lead vocalists have also toured nationally throughout Europe, and have performed on the Pantorium Sessions for KHOI Radio and Midwest Review Live. Their music has also graced places such as: Sofar Concerts in St. Louis, Mo. & New York City, Rockwood Music Hall in New York City, and the Nebraska State Fair. They continue to tour regionally throughout the Midwest and Mountain States.
The group was nominated in 2016, 2017 and 2018 by the Omaha Arts and Entertainment Awards as one of the top Americana Folk Bands in the area, and in 2017 as Local Album of the year for their album, “Sweet Nostalgia.” In December 2017, they performed live as part of the Paste Music and Daytrotter Sessions.
The Wildwoods also have proven to be talented songwriters. In 2019, The Wildwood’s song “Untitled,” made the semi-finals in the International Songwriting competition, as did “Way of Train” in 2017 along with “Dance with Me” in 2016. Two of their songs also placed in the top 10 of the 2015 Omaha Performing Arts Songwriting Competition.
The Wildwoods’ Noah Gose (vocals, guitar, harmonica and piano) and the former Chloe Pinkman (vocals, violin, mandolin and guitar) discovered their shared love of music shortly after they fell in love back in 2012, according to their bio, which added that The Wildwoods “strive to make music that touches the soul and speaks of truth which will be sure to melt your heart with every performance.”
Doors will open at 7:30 p.m., and the show will begin at 8 p.m.
