How do you define the music of The Darnell Woodies? Is it bluegrass, punk, rock, jazz, blues? If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, you’ve got at least an entrée into the unique sound that is Darnell Woodies: fiddler Bryan Gallimore, guitarist, singer/songwriter Matt Smith, Brad Cokendolpher on banjo, mandolin, etc., William vonReichbauer is the bassist, and on drums, the Rev. Doug Hawkins. They visited WFDD in July of 2012 to kick off the official release of their CD Dancing on Your Grave.
