“The Woodshedders are going places—in every sense of the phrase. The Loudoun/West Virginia-based band, a fixture on the local Americana scene for a decade, is taking things to the next level with an evolving sound, a well-received 2013 album and an expanding tour schedule. The quintet takes the stage at Waterford’s Old School on Saturday, May 3, the latest in the Waterford Foundation’s Old Schoolhouse concert series, which brings contemporary music in a range of genres to the venue well known for its classical concerts. The Woodshedders features Harpers Ferry-based Dwayne Brooke on guitar and lead vocals, Loudoun native and popular Leesburg dentist Ryan Mayo on upright bass and piano, Richmond’s Jared Pool on guitar and mandolin, Jesse Shultzaberger of Shepherdstown, WV, on drums, and Bluemont’s David Van Deventer on fiddle. The band got its start 10 years ago at a regular Thursday evening gypsy jazz jam at the historic Hilltop House in Harpers Ferry, which closed in 2008.”
