The Woods Tea Company, a local folk band formed in the early 80's, joined Brent Hallenback in the studio for Rocket Shop, Big Heavy World's local radio hour on February 3rd. This group has had many members over the years and currently includes Howard Wooden on the bass and guitar, Patti Casey playing the flute and the guitar, and Pete Sutherland playing the fiddle — one of Vermont's greatest folk musicians. They are also occasionally joined by band member Mike Lussen, who plays various string instruments. The Woods Tea Company has a long history, which we hope will continue for many years to come. Check them out at the Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center in Stowe on February 7th, along with a show in Cortland, New York at the Brown Auditorium on March 28th.
