The April UU Coffeehouse in Springfield will feature Woodchuck's Revenge with Kristina Cady on Saturday the 21st, 7 pm.
Formed in front of the fire on a winter's night in 1990, Woodchucks' Revenge brings together as a performing group three friends who have combined their lifelong love of music to offer their audiences an eclectic and refreshing mix of traditional and contemporary folksongs played with spirit and an old time country sensibility.
The Woodchucks' repertoire, which has been described as encyclopedic, ranges from New England fiddle tunes to modern cowboy songs, from Irish ballads to 60's folk, blues and bluegrass. Songs about Vermont, mountains, and life in New England are staple of the group's performances, along with a healthy dose of humor and a small but growing number of originals.
The Woodchucks have performed throughout Vermont and the adjoining states and in Wyoming and Montana... at colleges and community events and festivals, in coffehouses and summer concert series, country fairs and bluegrass festivals as well as the New England Folk Festival (NEFFA), and the Northeast Music, Arts and Dance Festival (NOMAD). They have performed on Public Radio in Vermont and New York, as well as local access television. Their audiences have included students, seniors, visitors to Vermont, historical reenactors, and folk music fans of all ages.
