I first happened upon Beth many years ago at a small bar called McHenry's, housed over a seedy motel on the west side of Fort Worth, and immediately bought some of her albums and signed up for her mailing list. After returning to DC in 2007, I noticed in one of her newsletters that she was playing a "house concert" in Silver Spring -- and thus I attended my first ever such event.
Quite simply, Beth Wood is one of the reasons I started organizing house concerts in the first place; so she's the official "godmother" of our house concert series. Beth delivers a soulful, joy-filled performance that quickly wins over everyone in the room. From her a cappella "mission statement" to her haunting rendition of "At Last," it was such a supreme pleasure to get to know this wonderful person and consummate artist - and, what a voice!
Beth has developed a large following, and it's easy to see why. We can't wait to have her back.
