INA MAY WOOL - 153 words

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 raveups 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.
