Beth Wood will weave together songs, stories, and poetry for an offering that reminds us of the connecting power of word and song. Wood is a modern-day troubadour, poet, and believer in the power of word and song. Beth has been writing, creating, recording, and touring full-time twenty-three years — delighting and inspiring audiences with her exceptional musicianship, intelligent songwriting, powerhouse voice, and warm and commanding stage presence. Beth has released twelve solo albums, one duo project album, three books of poetry, and a collection of funny stories from the road. Beth's poetry book Ladder To The Light (Mezcalita Press) is the winner of the 2019 Oregon Book Awards People's Choice Award. Beth's work has expanded to include teaching and song coaching as well as leading workshops at festivals, songwriting retreats and beyond. Beth lives in Sisters, OR with her loyal dog Bailey and is continuously writing and rewriting her artist's manifesto.

Beth has immersed herself in the northwest music community through her work on staff with the Sisters Folk Festival Americana Song Academy and as long-time host of the Sisters Folk Festival Sunday Community Celebration. Beth's dream is move something with her art, whether it's a swirling emotion or a curious mind or tapping feet. Her mission is to communicate the joy she feels when she opens her mouth and sings. Beth's musical philosophy is that there are no wrong notes.
