Jimmy Ryan & Hayride at Sally O'Brien's
Welcome to the mandomaniacal, trans-genre world of
"Jimmy Ryan is one of those names woven into the fabric of Americana music. He's not atop the marquee, mind you, a la Lucinda Williams or Buddy Miller, but his contributions are considerable. He's perhaps best-known as one of the principals in alt-country precursors the Blood Oranges, but his cheat sheet also includes the more bluegrass-based Beacon Hill Billies, the rural-rocking Wooden Leg, and [...] an extended stint with Boston folkie Catie Curtis. Ryan may well be residing in your record collection in less obvious places, too -- his oft-unconventional mandolin playing has colored songs by such varied artists as Morphine, Warren Zevon, Dumptruck, Boiled In Lead, Gerald Collier and Mary Gauthier."

Last Sunday of Every Month!
What do you get when you combine a crooning bluegrass mandolin master, a veteran bassist, a fiddler who plays through fuzz boxes and wah-wah pedals, sounding more like Jimi Hendrix than Papa John Creach, and a big band swing drummer who inexplicably feels moved to pound the skins harder than John Bonham on a bender? Do you call it country, folk, bluegrass, rock n roll, or maybe just a freak of nature? Just call it Wooden Leg, and give the group room to do its thing. Its much safer that way. -David Wildman, Boston Globe
