Terry Woods could with some justice claim to be one of the founding fathers of electric folk in Britain. He is known for his membership in such folk and folk-rock groups as The Pogues, Steeleye Span, Sweeney's Men, The Bucks and, briefly, Dr. Strangely Strange and Dublin rock band Orphanage, with Phil Lynott, as well as in a duo/band with his then wife, Gay, billed initially as The Woods Band and later as Gay and Terry Woods.
The Woods Band released one self-titled album in December 1971 that actually sounded rather similar to, and held its own with, Steeleye Span's own early work. The record was a respectable mixture of traditional material and originals (largely from the pen of Terry Woods), with standard rock instruments embellished by mandola, concertina, autoharp, dulcimer, bodhran, and harpsichord.
