The band members met at different times and places, but Clara Delfina brought them together to record her first studio album “May Day” in Floyd, Virginia. What was meant, at first, to be a ‘once-off’ group of studio musicians, quickly became a close-knit fiery band full of energy and laughter. Each musician has a unique background and musical voice, but it all fits perfectly together, as each bit of instrumentation and harmony weaves together in every raging fiddle tune and tragic song they perform.
Clara Delfina: an Austin resident, is an accomplished fiddler who is well versed in guitar, banjo, and singing. Clara comes from a long line of traditional musicians, reaching back to the Missouri Ozarks. Her songwriting pulls inspiration from the country heroes of the recent past (Such as Ray Price, Loretta Lynn) while her instrumentation echoes the sounds of deeply rooted folk traditions. Having toured the UK and US and taught at Colorado Old-Time Festival, her space in the quickly evolving world of music is becoming increasingly more clear.
Landon George: Calls Asheville home, and plays with Phil Jamison in the band Jenny and the Hog Drovers, which has toured the US and China. He has a background in Jazz, Rock, Old-Time and experimental music. Although he’s a multi-instrumentalist, his presence in this band is mostly centered around energetic bass playing, which is as dynamic as it is consistent.
Haakon Oyen: A Multi-instrumentalist from Asheville, NC. Who has played around the US and Europe with his band the Slack Bow Nerds, among others. His guitar and vocal harmonies feature greatly in the band, as well as his unique humor and energy.
Jake Blount: An incredible banjo player, fiddler, singer, and ethnomusicologist, who just recently has been recording and touring with bluegrass/old-time fiddler Tatiana Hargreaves. His research about Black and American Indian fiddlers has been a force to reckon with, as
