Whitney with Kevin Morby and Hand Habits

The 2019 edition of the Woodsist Festival took place on Saturday, September 28th at Arrowood Farm upstate in Accord, New York, a perfectly ideal situation for a lovely day of music. The surrounding of the farm and brewery was a perfect situation for the fall weather, giving fans one of their last chances to enjoy a day of live music outdoors. The day was set up to showcase some of the closest friends of the Woodsist label, with headlining sets from friends and former acts of theirs such as Whitney, Real Estate, along with Woods themselves, Kevin Morby, Waxahatchee, and many more.

This allowed the artists to seize the day and capitalize on their friendships with special collaborations and surprises. For instance, Woods performed as the Songs of Shame 10th-anniversary lineup which saw Kevin Morby take back his role on bass. Their set also featured a tribute to the late David Berman, with a cover of Purple Mountains’ “All My Happiness is Gone” that featured Little Wing’s Kyle Field on vocals and then Kevin Morby sang on a cover of Silver Jews’ “Random Rules.”


Kevin Morby and Waxahatchee’s Katie Crutchfield joined one another for their respective sets and one of the coolest moments of the entire day was during Whitney’s headlining set where they invited Morby and Meg Duffy of Hand Habits’ to cover Morby’s “I Have Been to the Mountain.”

It was a perfect day of live music one that I hope Woodsist puts on again soon in the near future at the same location. It’s the was that all festivals should strive to be.
