<We were glad to spend the morning down by the railroad tracks for Lexington KY’s Shaker Steps to film a song. Great guys doing great work. We powered the amp with a car battery and a converter and nearly got arrested for trespassing

Interview: Woody Pines Declares “You Gotta Roll”
Singer-songwriter Woody Pines has recently released his latest recording called You Gotta Roll. Woody was a founding member of the Kitchen Syncopators, a legendary busking street jugband from Eugene, OR, that were one of the most exciting acts to emerge out of the West Coast folk scene in recent history.
Since the Kitchen Syncopators disbanded years ago, Woody Pines has been writing and recording albums and frequently performing for audiences everywhere, while co-founder of the band, Gill Landry, has gone on to joinOld Crow Medicine Show while pursuing his own solo projects (Check out my recent career-spanning interview with Gill).
Shortly after the Kitchen Syncopators dissolved, Woody Pines wasted no time and shot off on his own, embarking on a solo career interpreting his vision of American roots music. Woody’s recordings and live performances are full of stomp and swing, and jump and jive. It’s old-time feel-good music done by a young master who clearly understands that this kind of music was always about having a great time.
Woody’s You Gotta Roll is his first recording since his wildly addictive third full-length album Counting Alligatorsfrom 2009 (which featured such guests as Ketch Secor and Gill Landry of Old Crow as well as Woody’s good pal Felix from the Kitchen Syncopators days).
Upon hearing Woody’s You Gotta Roll, I decided it was the perfect time to catch up with him for an interview feature, in the hope of exposing his music to a wider audience. As a fan of the Woody’s solo work, as well as his days with the Kitchen Syncopators, I am very excited to share this one with the readers of Uprooted Music Revue and No Depression.
