Skarlett Woods blends mesmerizing vocal passages with an acoustic guitar groove far advanced beyond the average singer/songwriter. Her combining of folk with a West Coast jazz style is both unique and wonderfully familiar. Last year she won honors at the Duluth Dylan Fest Songwriting Contest, performed at the Duluth Does Bonnie Raitt concert and participated in a Ukraine Benefit hosted at the Sacred Heart Music Center. She also held down an October residency at Sir Benedict’s Tavern. A sophomore album with producer Kevin Bowe is in the works and scheduled for release this fall.
