Congratulations to our friend Beth Wood for being selected to perform on the Cayamo 2007 Caribbean Cruise. Beth will be hanging out, singing and having a lot of fun with Lyle Lovett, Shawn Colvin, Emmylou Harris, John Hiatt and a dozen or so more acclaimed singer/songwriters.
Eleven years ago Texas singer-songwriter Beth Wood kissed her day-job goodbye and hit the road to play music full-time. Since then, she has released seven independent albums, won many songwriting awards including the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Award, charted in the top 20 on the AAA radio charts, had a song featured on Fox Television’s “Party of Five”, sung our National Anthem at major league baseball and basketball games, and toured nationally as a solo artist.
But most importantly to Beth, she has found a way to connect with others through her music. Beth is a high-energy communicator of joy, a modern-day troubadour with a killer voice, poetic lyrics, and wickedly strong guitar stylings. If you ask Thor Christensen at the Dallas Morning News about Beth, he’ll say, “a voice and songs this strong are bound to persevere.”
Beth, thanks for being a part of the Farm To Market Music Team!
