The Chicken Pluckers
Marylou Ferrante was described by music critic and writer, Daniel Gewertz, in the Boston Herald, as the Bay State's finest female acoustic blues interpreter. Marylou is an artist who performs pre-war blues from the 1920's & 30's. She covers major artists from the delta to east coast piedmont style players such as Robert Johnson, Charlie Patton, Blind Boy Fuller and Memphis Minnie along with mandolin players such as Yank Rachell. Her passionate expression of these old songs comes from a love of the music and the arrangements themselves, as well as what she says is an appreciation for "the history of these folks and the difficult circumstances they endured."
Marylou has honed her craft listening to the old recordings and learning from some of the great blues players today such as Paul Rishell, Guy Davis, Robert Jones and mandolin great Rich DelGrosso. Marylou has taught at The Cellar Studio, Salem MA
* "Marylou is a killer. I have watched her grow, and now she's taking over. Blues lovers look out!"... GUY DAVIS
* "Marylou has the soul of a blues Woman" Detroit's Blues Man... ROBERT JONES ..
Woody Pringle loves to get people together to have fun and play music. Hence, we developed our new band the Chicken Pluckers. He performs old-time music in the Bradford Bog People and has produced three Bog People CDs. Their most recent CD "Fully Peated" was described by the Old-Time Herald Magazine as "beautiful music." Rostered with the NH Humanities Council "NH to GO", Woody presents the program Rally Round the Flag through Folksong with Marek Bennett. He is also a performing artist with the NH States Arts Council under the band Big Paws.
