Jon B. Woodin & Jude Roberts perform live in the beautiful upstairs performance space at ASK. They will play separate sets, as well as playing songs together. The Gentlemen promise an evening of lilting melody and spot-on harmony, and as always…cool hats!
JON B WOODIN
Your friendly fellow Catskill cat, Jon B Woodin is on the prowl, touring round the Hudson Valley area (and occasionally beyond) bringing his trusty guitar and a vast collection of all original music; genres ranging from light rock and blues, to folk and alternative country. Jon’s work is heavily influenced by guitar playing artists like Jim Croce, Gordon Lightfoot, Jefrey Foucault and James Taylor.
Jude Roberts writes and performs evocative folk songs with authenticity and grace. In an era where melody is conspicuously absent in much music, he makes it the focal point of his writing.
Jude’s sound is influenced by English, Irish and Appalachian folk music, with touches of baroque and Romantic-era classical pieces and European folk/pop. A unique amalgam of style and talent, Jude Roberts draws the listener inward and invites them to dive deep.
“He fingerpicks with the delicacy, assurance and color of Nick Drake; sings with the bell-like clarity and gentle high end of a lost Finn brother; and writes Anglo- and pop-inflected folksongs with the offhand grace and deceptive sophistication of early James Taylor, Richard Thompson or Sir Paul himself.” – John Burdick, HV 1 Art and Music
Having traveled extensively throughout Europe for performance and pleasure, he launched a project leading music-focused retreats to Greece in October 2019. These tours will resume in 2024.
