Rebecca Rule, aka the Moose of Humor, is a humorist/writer who
specializes in funny stories about New Hampshire. You never know
what is going to happen once the lies, uh, stories start flying.
Her CDs are "Better Than a Poke in the Eye" and "Perley Gets a Dump
Sticker." Her latest books are "Live Free & Eat Pie: A
Storyteller’s Guide to New Hampshire” and “Headin’for the Rhubarb: A
New Hampshire Dictionary (well, kinda).”
Cordwood is a bluegrass and folk quartet made up of instrumental,
vocal, and recording artists from Northwood, Strafford, and
Deerfield. This is not your local neighborhood hobby band.
They are a fine group of seasoned New England musicians. Each can
hold his or her own at field picking or a back stage jam, and yet, as a
band, they present a highly polished on-stage performance. All
four members of Cordwood are storytellers and songwriters, creating
original material for instrumentalists who can sing and harmonize,
sometimes taking the lead vocal, other times hanging back and lending
two, three, ore even four part harmonies to a song. Cordwood
provides a unique sound to both originals and the covers they
perform. Their tunes remain heartfelt and down-home. The
band’s material is a mixture of traditional bluegrass, folk, and
swing. Cordwood is Wini Young on banjo and guitar, Walt
Kutylowski on bass, Al Pratt on guitar, and Bob Young on mandolin,
names you may remember from Big Chicken, The Deerfield Coffeehouse Band
and Fat Hands.
