Rick Woodward and Rick Seale have been playing and writing music together for twelve years. From their home base in Central Louisiana comes a great mix of original acoustic songs that show their combined multi-faceted musical influences. From Delta Blues to R&B and from Celtic to Contemporary Folk, the Hoodoo Papas play with drive and soul. Rick Woodward: 'I feel the whole concept of the Hoodoo Papas is summed up in the idea of 'acoustic gumbo' as a musical genre. I guess you could say the Hoodoo Papas is about creating a feeling of fun without losing the realities of life.' Rick Seale: 'The Hoodoo Papas represents a unique chance to witness the interplay between good musicians using a great medium of expression - the acoustic guitar. We are a band reminiscent of the early delta musicians in that you don't know what we're going to play next. As we always say, wherever we sit, there's a party.'
