Award-Winning Folk Singer Beth Wood Takes the Stage at BlackRock

January 15, 2019

Coming off the release of her 11th studio album “A Long Road,” multi-instrumentalist Beth Wood will take over the Studio Theater at BlackRock this Thursday, January 17 at 7:30 pm as part of its popular 3rd Thursday’s singer-songwriter series. The seasoned, award-winning songwriter will take Germantown on the journey of a restless independent artist.

   With the release of her new album and over 20 years in the music industry, Beth Wood is as experienced as they come, and always striving to improve upon her already prestigious songwriting. Born in Lubbock, Texas, Wood’s music was influenced by countless musical sources, ranging from classical music from her mother, to the sweet sounds of Willie Nelson from her father, with inspiration from some of her favorites, like John Denver, Lyle Lovett and Fleetwood Mac along the way.

   She would not pursue music as a profession until her 20s, when she would progress from playing gigs with friends in noisy bars to opening for the likes of Steve Winwood, Shawn Colvin, Michael MacDonald, and many others. Her refined songwriting, developed from years of penning poetry, has won her a number of reputable songwriting contests such as the Sisters Folk Festival Dave Carter Memorial Songwriting Contest, Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Contest, the Wildflower Festival Songwriting Contest, and being an honorable mention for the Billboard World Song Contest.

   “Writing is about trying to make sense of being human in the world,” Wood says, “and also about taking note of life’s wonder, joy, injustice, complexity.”

   Patrons are encouraged to bring BYOF (Bring Your Own Feast) to our 3rd Thursdays Series.  Create your own picnic basket or grab your favorites from the enormous array of nearby Germantown restaurants to enjoy at our jazz-style table seating.

   BlackRock Center for the Arts is a cultural cornerstone and the leading venue for the performing and visual arts in Upper Montgomery County Maryland. Since 2002, the nonprofit arts center has been providing the community with diverse performing arts programs, free gallery exhibitions and arts education experiences in a welcoming and intimate setting close to home. The dynamic facility houses two art galleries, two theaters presenting more than 40 performances per year, and numerous classrooms and studios where year-round classes in the arts are offered for all ages.
