ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“... ‘Names In Stone’ is great two lane traveling music. It is upbeat and foot tapping enough to make the miles fly by, but not so fast that you end up with a speeding ticket.”

“... Been sure enjoying the new CD. All original songs from a very talented
group. I was playing it the other day and a customer was in the store when Blue Corvair came on. Thank you Bob! ... there is a satisfied groupie out here in midwestern Ma.”

“... Just wanted to say I've enjoyed listening to ‘Names In Stone.’ Sure had the feel and warmth of good friends making good music.”

Cordwood is an acoustic, country folk and bluegrass band out of south eastern New Hampshire, not quite the seacoast, not quite the Lakes Region and not quite Boston. Much as the Rocky Mountain sound and West Coast sound are recognizably different from that of Texas, Virginia or Tennessee bluegrass, New England adds its own regional flavor to bluegrass and string band music. Yet the tunes remain heart felt and down home.

Cordwood is all of that as well as a fine group of New England musicians. Each can hold his or her own at field picking or on stage jam and still present a polished stage performance .  All four instrumentalists can sing and vocalize, sometimes taking the lead vocal, or hanging back and lending two, three or even four part harmonies to a song.  They are all storytellers and songwriters, creating original material for their performances and recordings.  Finally, Cordwood is a band, giving their unique sound to both originals and to the covers they perform. 

Cordwood evolved out of the "Down from the Hill” benefit concert for the Bear-Paw Regional Greenways Land Trust. Oh yes, "Down from the Hill" came from the fact that almost all of the performers that first night had met at a camp site at the "top of the hill" at the Winter Hawk/Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival.  Wini and Bob Young had been performing as a duo. They had worked with Walter occasionally as a trio and as members of the Deerfield Coffeehouse Band.  Walt Kutylowski, in addition to working with the DCB, was performing with his brother Nick in the band known as Fat Hands. Walt and Nick continue to charm audiences from the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville to the Lazy Lion in Deerfield, providing what has come to be known as the "Kutylowski Charm."  Al Pratt is heralded throughout the New Hampshire Seacoast as a musician's musician.  You might find him playing drums, bass, guitar, trumpet or banjo.  While Wini, Walt and Bob were performing with the Coffeehouse Band, Al was hooting it up with Big Chicken. 

Wini and Al are on the Board of Directors for Bear-Paw, so Wini asked Al if he would like to sit in with Bob and Walt and her for that first “Down from the Hill” benefit.  Well, what was to have been a single performance felt so good, it turned into Cordwood.  Al continues to perform with club bands. He is currently the bass man in Back Forty. Walt continues to perform and record with Fat Hands.  Likewise Bob and Wini continue their appearances as a duo, and, casting wisdom to the wind,  have been seen with the “Manic Mountain Boys All Stars.”  You may also notice Wini and the boys as session musicians on recordings for a few local New Hampshire performers.  Cordwood is one of the regular "house bands" for the "Bluegrass at Nippo Lake Series" in Barrington, New Hampshire.

Great CD
A great album with tunes that will be on replay inside your head. Nothing quite like having Blue Corvair running through your head first thing in the morning.
