Nearly Lost Stars
Wooden Dinosaur consists of Michael Roberts (guitar, morin huur, singing) Katie Trautz (fiddle, singing) and Frank Roberts (marching bass drum). The twelve tracks on Nearly Lost Stars represent a new beginning for the band. Often compared to singers like Rufus Wainwright and Bonnie Prince Billy, Michael Roberts croons in a tenor both comforting and disruptive. Katie Trautz adds to the mix with clear, strong harmonies and masterful fiddle work. Rounding out the bands sound is Frank Roberts on simple but pounding percussion, and guest Craig Barowsky on trumpet.
