Waldoboro — The Waldo Theatre presents the next in its popular virtual concert series with the Jason Anick and Celia Woodsmith Trio Thursday, April 8, at 7 p.m. The show will be broadcast live in real-time from the historic Waldo stage.

Singer-songwriter Woodsmith and violin virtuoso Anick front this newly minted supergroup with bassist Charles Clements. They will perform an array of roots inspired originals, country classics, western swing, and bluegrass music. These globe-trotting musicians have crossed paths at festivals all over the world with their respective projects (Della Mae, Lonely Heartstring Band, Rhythm Future Quartet) and are excited to share the stage for this special collaboration.

Woodsmith is a Grammy-nominated performer, vocalist and songwriter. Over time, and without any formal training, Woodsmith molded her own vocal style and has been hailed by the Boston Globe as "Unvarnished and intimate (...) but then sounds like she's about to part the Dead Sea."

Woodsmith has released nine albums of original music most recently with Nashville-based bluegrass band Della Mae and her Boston-based vintage rock project SAY Darling. In 2014 Della Mae was nominated for a Best Bluegrass Album Grammy for its record "This World Oft Can Be."

One of the youngest violin professors at Boston’s Berklee College of Music, Anick is considered a rising star in the world of jazz violin and mandolin. In addition to leading various groups under his own name and performing with the Rhythm Future Quartet, Anick has been touring and recording with Grammy award-winning Nashville guitar virtuoso John Jorgenson since 2008.

A versatile musician and sought after side-man, Anick has also shared the stage with an array of artists from Stevie Wonder to Ward Hayden and the Outliers, and performed all over the world.

Recent virtual concerts from The Waldo have attracted audiences from close to 200 households and reached fans in more than 20 states. Since the theater is not yet open to the public, there will be no audience in the theatre. The performance will be captured live by a technical “stream team” with the use of The Waldo’s three-camera video system.

Ticket buyers can watch the event live, in real-time via a YouTube link, and/or watch an archived recording later for up to one week. Tickets are $15 for one person or $20 for multiple viewers. A YouTube link will be sent to ticket-buyers on the day of the concert. Visit waldotheatre.org/pages/events.
