Ina May Wool (SHORT BIO)

Ina May WoolIna May Wool is a New York-based singer-songwriter with blues and country and lots of touring in her background.  She plays guitar and mandolin, writes award-winning songs, and sings in a powerful voice that goes effortlessly from a shout to a whisper.  "One of my favorite New York songwriters." John Platt, WFUV


Ina May Wool began singing and playing guitar with a country and blues band out of her home state of Massachusetts.  The Ina May Wool Band played everywhere from clubs and folk festivals to concerts opening for Tom Rush, Maria Muldaur, Taj Mahal, Orleans, and many more. She now sings solo, has added mandolin to the mix, and writes everything from stomping rave-ups to reflective, poetic, and often wryly humorous songs.  She lives in a musical space all her own and is currently putting together a new recording that does justice to her particular amalgamation of Americana and American popular song.   Now based in New York City, Ina May has released two award-winning solo CD’s - Moon Over 97th Street in 1999 and Crack It Open in 2004. Her duo recording, WOOL&GRANT, was recently nominated for Best New Folk album by the Just Plain Folks Organization.  And yes, that is her real name.
