Wayward Roots at Comfy Couch Concerts
To paraphrase the old adage, if Wayward Roots didn't already exist, we'd have to invent them. Formed in 2008 with one foot in the backwoods, one foot on the highway and somehow yet a third foot on the stage of some dive in Appalachia the 'Roots have cut their teeth individually and as a band with consistent performances and regional tours in and around their native Ann Arbor, MI for the last three years.
Wayward Roots have a sound that's both old and familiar and strikingly new; steeped in the bluegrass and roots tradition with a predilection toward a new acoustic style and flavors of adventurous jazz and the occasional detour into the far-out zone sometimes all in the same tune. Speaking of tunes, it's not just about the playing; Wayward Roots write original tunes to extend the vocabulary of the ones you know and make you hungry for more of the ones you don't. Collectively, their rich musical histories make hearing and seeing them as much fun for the listener as it obviously is for them, and their chops combined with their intuitive improvisational skills make this band much more than the sum of its impressive parts.
