Live at Wood Hall is the fourth album release from Canadian singer-songwriter Allison Crowe. This double-CD set was recorded over two nights of concerts in the converted church chapel of the Victoria Conservatory of Music in Victoria, British Columbia.

The concert repertoire captured on these discs encompasses a range of genres from roots & blues, through folk, pop/rock, jazz and Broadway. rough the artist's concert repertoire, freshly recorded in the converted chapel of Victoria (B.C.)'s Alongside more than an album's worth of original songs, Allison covers some of her favourite artists of today - Ani DiFranco's "Independence Day", Tori Amos' "Playboy Mommy", Counting Crows' "A Murder of One" - and classic rock - John Lennon's "Imagine" and "Me and Bobby McGee", a song penned by Fred Foster and Kris Kristofferson and recorded most famously by Janis Joplin. She also gives a nod to Broadway with "Bill" (from Show Boat) and "I Dreamed a Dream" (from Les Misérables). Add in some jazz, "In Love in Vain", and a traditional Irish aire, "Believe Me, if All Those Endearing Young Charms", and the result is the sort of eclectic mix for which the artist is becoming known.
