With Special Guest MONICA RIZZIO
Take yourself back to the days of dusty country roads, carefree summers, and your radio tuned to music that was soulful and authentic. Enter Plywood Cowboy in 2018, crafting songs ripe with these nostalgic comforts, yet perfectly suited for the soundtrack of modern life. With their second album release, “Blue Skies”, the band continues to produce refreshing music that has been called “steeped in tradition, with lyrics full of longing, truth and heart” by Sound Waves Magazine. The album has earned a spot on the Grammy ballot in the Best Americana Album and Best Americana Song categories. The band has also been honored to open for the Grammy-nominated act Yarn, as well as for United States Poet Laureate Billy Collins, has performed with members of Keith Urban’s band, and been featured in the DJ Showcase at Northeast Regional Folk Alliance. In 2018, Plywood Cowboy won the Connecticut Folk Festival band competition, giving them the opportunity to share the CT Folk Festival stage with The Alternate Routes, Jesse Terry and Martin Sexton.
