Bluegrass, Americana; Travianna Records — STREAM / BUY single
Featuring the skilled and award-winning talents of Eli and Aila Wildman (multiple blue-ribbon winners at major bluegrass festivals since 2017) and Victor Furtado—winner of the 2019 Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Banjo (among other accolades)—this new quartet (also featuring Sean Newman on bass) is primed for a breakthrough in 2020. The group has appeared on stages large and small, performing in festivals such as Red Wing Roots, Chantilly Farm’s Bluegrass and BBQ festival, Grey Fox Bluegrass, Floyd Fest, and The Steep Canyon Rangers’ Mountain Song Festival. They also regularly represent young talent along the Crooked Road in regional fiddler’s conventions. Having shared the stage with talents such as Bela Fleck, The Steep Canyon Rangers, The Steel Wheels, Danny Knicely, Sammy Shelor, Sierra Hull, Billy Strings, and more, the Mountain Fever Records artists are making their way in the American stringband scene.
