After 27 great years, the voice of the Woods Tea Co. - Mike Lussen retired. He's doing fine and does occasional local shows with Hugh McBride.
The Woods Tea Company is an acoustic group performing Celtic tunes, Novelty, French-Canadian, and American folk songs with equal ease and skill.
All members are fine vocalists, often leaving audiences thrilled by their wonderful harmonies. During a performance the band uses as many as a dozen different instruments.
After building a solid reputation in New England, Woods Tea Company started touring on the concert circuit nationwide, eventually playing in all the lower 48 states. Notable performances include New York's Lincoln Center (twice), the Chautauqua Institute (three times), and appearances on PBS and National Public Radio, who labeled them "Vermont's hardest working folk group."
