Since their inception in late 2014, The Wooks have been making noise in central Kentucky and beyond. With threads of bluegrass, singer-songwriter, rock, and jam band music woven throughout, The Wooks are as at home on a festival stage as they are in a barn in the heart of Kentucky's horse country. The Wooks translate the sights and sounds of the people, hills, bars, roads, and creeks around them into songs and shows that captivate with both a respect for their heritage and innovative originality. The current iteration of the band is the natural evolution of a sound that has always been there and has gained traction nationally as much as locally over the past several years, having won the prestigious 2016 RockyGrass Band Competition, placed in the finals for the 2017 Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Competition, and were a 2017 IBMA Momentum Award Nominee.
