Billy Denk & the Educated Cowboys
Billy Denk & the Educated Cowboys are a four-piece roots-rock group based in Woodstock. The band was formed in 2005, when singer / songwriter / guitarist / mandolinist Billy Denk was asked to perform a featured set at the acclaimed Stage Left Café.

The band's sound incorporates elements of rock, folk and old country for a rootsy blend of modern americana.

The talented Bobby Lipar, formerly with Don Stiernberg, channels Hank Williams' and George Jones' vocals with James Burton's guitar. Kim Nugent masterfully imbues melodic sensibility with her high lonesome fiddle. The right touch of rhythmic drive and dynamics come courtesy of Rob Broz, the Berkelee Educated Cowboy.
