Wild Hair


Fun, eclectic Portland Oregon-based dance band Wild Hair pleases with addictively danceable fiddle tunes and songs from Ireland, New England, Appalachia, French Canada, and unexpected points beyond. Swingy fiddler Betsy Branch, versatile Todd Silverstein (pennywhistle, alto sax, bouzouki), syncopacious pianist Mark Douglass and percussive guitarist Jeff Kerssen-Griep sync up a propulsive ensemble sound that’s bigger than the sum of its parts. Wild Hair’s giddy groove is spontaneous, harmonious, welcoming, feisty, and fun, played with contagious good humor aimed at your feet.
