Wood, Wire & Words

Norman Blake
Wood, Wire & Words

Nominated for a Grammy in the category of Best Traditional Folk Album, Wood, Wire & Words was old-time country legend Norman Blake’s first album of entirely original compositions in more than three decades. On this release, Blake masterfully presents twelve selections composed of two rags, one march, and eight songs. Serving primarily as the album’s sole performer, Blake is direct and enthralling, while his original works seamlessly bring a centuries-old songwriting style into the present day. Wood, Wire & Words was originally released by Plectrafone in 2015.
