COMMON FENCE MUSIC has announced that they will present front man WOODY PINES and his band on Saturday, September 28, 2019, 8pm. Doors will open to CFM members at 7pm, non-members at 7:15pm.

The concert will take place at the CFP Arts, Wellness & Community Center, 933 Anthony Road, Portsmouth, RI. Tickets to the show are $22 in advance, $25 at the door,  $10 for CFM members. Tickets and information may be obtained at and will also be available for purchase at the door.

After spending a year on the road, Common Fence Music is kicking off their Fall 2019 season with a celebratory return to the recently renovated CFP Arts, Wellness & Community Center (formerly Common Fence Point Hall)….and no artist fits the occasion better than Woody Pines! With his catchy rhythms, jumpy lyrics, and wildly delirious sense of fun, this Nashville troubador is famous for the kind of raise-the-rafters, boot-shakin’ jump blues that used to be banging out of juke joints all over the South in the late 1940s. Having traveled all over the streets of the United States and Europe, road testing his songs and “hillbilly boogie” sound, Woody draws from the catchiest elements of the music he loved, adding in hopped-up vintage electrification to get that old country dancehall sound down right. In other words, the perfect soundtrack for a CFM homecoming! For more information about Woody Pines, visit

Keeping with the spirit of the event, BBQ pulled pork sandwich plates and country style pie will be available from the CFM kitchen in addition to their signature selection of baked goods and beverages. For those who prefer to carry in their own fare, this event will be BYOB & Picnic.

CFP Arts, Wellness & Community Center is located at 933 Anthony Road, Portsmouth, RI. Free parking is available adjacent to and across the street from the building. The hall is fully accessible. Ticket prices vary. For more information about Common Fence Music, please visit, or call (401)683-5085.
