Hoodang

 

continued

Like his bandmates, Rossiter isn't particularly showy onstage (although he banters freely and warmly between songs). But he's been the focal point for Hoodang for over a decade. Rossiter formed the band in 2003 with bassist Rich Rickman, and while Rickman and other backing musicians have come and gone, Hoodang has remained Rossiter's baby. He doesn't come off as a diva, though; he's got a fine band to support his efforts, and he knows it.

Hoodang recently released its second album, Blissfield, following it up with a typically busy schedule of area shows, including one at the Ark on March 1. In a town where folk is a lot bigger than country, and at a time when the label "country" itself refers primarily to an inauthentic corporate product, Hoodang's thoughtful, accomplished Americana is truly valuable. We're fortunate to have them this side of the Mason-Dixon Line.    (end of article)
