The Wildwoods Band at the Platt Duetsche

Event Dates and Times

1/6/2018 - Starts: 8:00 PM
Platt Duetsche 1315 W Anna St, Grand Island, NE 68801
The Wildwoods bring a pioneering sound to Americana Roots Music. Recently nominated by the Omaha Entertainment and Arts Awards as one of the best Americana/Folk bands in the area. Their heartwarming lyrics and vocals are rich in love and happiness, wrapped in a style of music that is like no other with influences from old time country masters and today’s Indie/Folk sound. People of all ages are drawn to their music. Mallory Gruben, from HC Media Online reported, “The Wildwoods seemed to face no obstacle in gaining the full attention of the audience, receiving a standing ovation by the end of their second set.” Andrew Stellman managing editor from Hear Nebraska wrote “There are perhaps few Nebraska acts that represent a merger of past and present quite like The Wildwoods, and if it’s taken you this long to notice, take the opening track of its new album Sweet Nostalgia. The young songwriting tandem of Chloe Pinkman and Noah Gose harmonize like something out of the Depression Era, fitted with a certain weight yet warmly and triumphantly capable of lifting hearts regardless.”

Talented songwriters, The Wildwoods song "Dance With Me" made the semi-finals in the 2016 International Songwriting competition. Two of their songs have also placed in the top 10 of the 2015 Omaha Performing Arts Songwriting Competition.

The Wildwoods will be sharing songs from their newest album “Sweet Nostalgia” This is what Live on Hear Nebraska FM had to say about it.
“That Sweet Nostalgia is the third release for this young five-piece folk act is alone admirable, were it not for the effortless charm and youthful whimsy they bring to classic Americana. The arm-in-arm camaraderie of “Loose Threads” bops and sways like a Randy Newman tune. “My Friend” swells with countryside imagery and ornate instrumentation, aided by the production prowess of ARC’s Ben Brodin. “Bedford Street” is a good old-fashioned hoe-down. And no matter how tearful or worrisome things seem, the turn is always hopeful: trust is endless, love is everlasting, the strings are always in tune and the sun is always shining. Sweet Nostalgia, indeed.”
