Wendy Woo returns to Glenwood

Submitted photoWendy Woo.

Wendy Woo is back at the Glenwood Springs Center for the Arts for a second time, 7 p.m. Friday, March 13. She first appeared in November of 2007.

Last visit, she thrilled the crowd with her guitar skills, beautiful voice, and funky indie-rock style. This year, Wendy Woo is bringing special guest Robin Hatch, who will be playing the viola, guitar and acting as Wendy’s back-up singer.

Lead guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Wendy Woo has been in the music scene for several years. The folk-rock music of Suzanne Vega and Paul Simon influenced Wendy to stick with the acoustic guitar, and to take from her roots in Boulder and add her own style. After working at the Fox Theatre in Boulder for a few years, she started performing her songs on stage with a band in 1995.

While working at the Fox, Wendy was the opening act for Sheryl Crow, produced her CD “Angels in the Crowd” (1997), and another album, “Wide Awake and Dreaming” (1999). After nearly seven years, Wendy left the Fox Theatre to pursue music full-time in 2000.

Wendy has produced three more of her own recordings: “Ecolalia” (2001), “Gonna Wear Red” (2002) and “Angels Laughing” (2005). Prior to her recording of “Walking the Skyline” (2004), Wendy sought out a band to help her write and develop songs. With the release of “Luxury” (2006), Wendy formed a trio with Chris Maestas on drums and Mitch DeZwarte on bass, both of whom wrote songs on the album.

Center for the Arts Executive Director Gayle Mortell said, ” Wendy Woo is the consummate performer. She is a genius on the guitar ” creating riffs that absolutely thrill the audience. Her voice is soulful, but she can rock! She loves performing at the Center for the Arts, and I’m excited that we have been able to bring her back.”

Wendy Woo will appear at 7 p.m. March 13 at the Glenwood Springs Center for the Arts. Tickets: $18/for members; $22/non-members. Call 945- 2414 to reserve tickets.
