Bruce Hornsby & The Noisemakers
The Wood Brothers
Bruce Hornsby & The Noisemakers
The Wood Brothers

Tapping into pop, jazz, bluegrass, country, and modern classical, Bruce Hornsby’s varied career is filled with high-profile collaborations from Bob Dylan to Elton John. “Hornsby can jam with the best” (NPR), but it’s his own music (like “The Way It Is”) that has garnered multiple Grammy wins across multiple categories. Along with Hornsby, The Wood Brothers return to Wolf Trap after performing with Tedeschi Trucks Band in 2017. This literal band of brothers adapts the blues, folk, and roots music into their own evocative sound, twining their voices in the sort of high‐lonesome harmony blend for which sibling singers are often renowned.
