Brett Robin Wood is a guitar wielding storyteller. His live performance has been described as “Leonard Cohen meets Charlie Chaplin.” This is contemporary lyrical Singer/Songwriter music ranging from reflective whimsy to upbeat acoustic folk pop. Brett’s appeared at festivals including the Sydney & Melbourne Comedy Festivals and a bunch of Folk Festivals including Illawarra [NSW] Yackandandah [VIC] the National [ACT], Nannup [WA], the Mount Beauty Music Muster [VIC] and Coastfest [NSW]
Formed over 30 years ago, the New York Public Library played at The Shack, PACT folk and other popular venues of the era. They have appeared on ABC TV and have performed on ABC and commercial radio.
Today the group still comprises three of the original members, John Flannagan, Warren Boyd and Isabelle Fogarty, and they perform at folk clubs and festivals, restaurants and private functions. They have also played for some years at the Tamworth Country Music Festival.
The instrument line up is typically bluegrass – banjo, guitars, mandolin, ukelele and double bass – but the group plays everything from bluegrass to Irish, country and contemporary music, plus some very funny original songs.
