A Vermont-based folk group known for vocal harmonies and skillful musicianship entertains Glenwood Springs Community Concert Association members this weekend.In support of the band’s recent release, “Standing Room Only,” The Woods Tea Company performs at 7:30 p.m. Sunday in the Glenwood Springs High School auditorium. Admission is by membership ticket in the association.Woods Tea Company weaves a musical trail through rousing sea chanties, lively folk music, spirited bluegrass, and haunting Celtic ballads, all of which is tempered with a parched New England wit. During each performance, the Woods Tea Company uses more than a dozen instruments, including the guitar, tin whistle, bodhrán (Irish frame drum), concertina (an accordion-like squeezebox), fiddle, and banjo. The New England quartet gives a memorable performance that keeps audiences entertained and delighted.

The band started playing to small college audiences in Burlington, Vt., and expanded to coffeehouses and Irish pubs. After building a solid reputation in New England, the Woods Tea Company began touring nationwide, with performances at the Lincoln Center, the Chautauqua Institute and on National Public Radio.Information about membership in the Glenwood Springs Community Concert Association is available by calling Judy at 945-5384 or Sue at 945-8722.
