Kelsey's Woods, the five-piece Americana/Roots band hailing from the scruffy little city of Knoxville, recently celebrated their 12-year anniversary milestone as a band in January of 2021. Rooted in the traditional and true sounds of oft-forgotten country music, Kelsey's Woods harkens back to years past when the story was the song. Having played nearly 300 shows in since 2009, KW started as a folky four-piece group with two gals and two guys. Over the years as their direction and sound began to evolve and change, the group morphed into a rowdy five-piece with an electrified take on traditional country with rock & roll swagger. The group consists of two original members, Dave Kennedy and Russ Torbett, and added current members and East Tennessee music vets Andrew Bryant, Stevie “Soapy” Jones, and Austin Stepp over seven years ago. Principal songwriter and lead singer Dave Kennedy, was featured on the country music performance television show “Real Country” over during the Fall of 2018, making it into the second round under country music legend Travis Tritt’s tutelage. Kennedy, now based outside of Nashville, focuses on his family, writing, his solo projects and Kelsey’s Woods, and more.
Each ticket includes access to a live stream of the show plus access to replay the event until Sunday at Midnight ET. Proceeds from the live stream will benefit both the Bijou Theatre and the artist.
