Live Music: The Hudson Dusters in Seasons

January 26 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

3 person band

The Hudson Dusters are an Americana/ Folk duo from Catskill, NY. Jon B Woodin and Foggy Otis share songwriting duties and vocals. To call Woodin a multi-instrumentalist is a gross understatement. Jon was born with the natural ability to make music with whatever instrument is within reach. In addition to guitar, he plays bass, banjo, saxophone, penny whistle, ukulele, keyboards, concertina, various implements of percussion and he is fluent in the art of beat-boxing. (A skill he puts to use on the Hudson Dusters’ 2018 debut album “Dare To Dream.”) He’s also performed extensively as Principal Cello in a number of orchestras. As a guitarist, Woodin has his own inimitable style. His finger-picking technique incorporates melodic bass lines with delicate countermelodies, often sounding like multiple guitarists at once. When describing Jon’s guitar playing, its been said he sounds like he’s got three hands. Foggy Otis plays ukulele. He found his way to the diminutive, four-stringed instrument after a life threatening illness took away his ability to play guitar. While many see the ukulele as a toy, a gimmick, a joke even, in Foggy’s hands it is truly an instrument capable of evoking a wide range of emotions and responses. He cites George Harrison, Terry Kath, Jerry Garcia and Steve Howe as major forces on his journey towards instrumental excellence.
