DAVID WOODHEAD
He was the long-time bassist for Canadian folk legend Stan Rogers.
And he’s recorded and toured with Loreena McKennitt and Valdy.
Bassist and multi-instrumentalist David Woodhead is hands down one of the most accomplished Canadian musicians only those “in the know” have heard of, and his genre-defying (mostly) instrumental supergroup Confabulation is a thrill-ride for players and audiences alike.
The current line-up features keyboardist Doug Wilde, drummer Rich Greenspoon, reeds player Colleen Allen and guitarist Bob Cohen.
Wilde has performed with Leonard Cohen and Jane Siberry, played on a couple of thousand TV commercials, and is director of the seminal Canadian world/jazz/fusion band Manteca.
Allen has performed with Anne Murray, Rita MacNeil, Gino Vannelli, Ani DiFranco, Holly Cole and Cirque du Soleil. She’s currently a member of Molly Johnson’s band.
Greenspoon is known for his work in the African music scene, notably with Njacko Backo. He was a member of Oliver Schroer’s Stewed Tomatoes and performs with Woodhead in the Toronto outfit Betty and the Bobs.
Cohen is best known for his six-year tenure touring and recording with Jesse Winchester, but he also spent years as a session player in Montreal earning credits with Felix LeClerc, Diane Tell and the late legendary songwriter Tim Hardin.
