The Midnight Wanderers
Coming together 4 years ago among a shared love of bluegrass, blues, folk and classic country, The Midnight Wanderers have honed their chops playing festivals to bars. Each member brings a unique fresh take on the americana sound, Jenny’s driving bass lines and song arrangements, Matt with tasty banjo and guitar licks, combined with Lia’s soulful vocals and harmonies, and Thads high lonesome fiddle sound With all members trading lead and harmony vocals to keep the sound dynamic and fun. They’ve recently branched into songwriting creating new songs with that familiar feeling audiences have come to love. Listening to the Midnight Wanderers leaves you happy like a warm summer afternoon. With songs curated from so many genres including classic rock, country and bluegrass there's something for everyone.
