Enjoy the best American music in the west and support the Lark!
Possessed of dazzling instrumental chops and an absolute mastery of acoustic musical styles, The Waybacks are an eclectic acoustic quartet, steeped in a wide array of Americana idioms. Whether mesmerizing audiences at intimate venues or creating a sensation at major festivals, the band has brought its onstage alchemy to enthusiastic fans far and wide.
From new grass and western swing to jug band and gypsy jazz, from folk and finger picking to alt-country and improvisational excursions that defy categorization, Waybacks music is wild, energetic and unpredictable. At full tilt, they take on the force of an acoustic rock band. With their stellar musicianship and innate sense of adventure, they stand in good company with the few bands at the forefront of New American acoustic music.
Opening for the Waybacks are The Wronglers (Warren Hellman, Nate Levine, Bill Martin, Krista Martin, Colleen Browne and Chris Hellman). They made their stage debut at the world famous Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in 2006, and quite literally had so much fun on stage that they couldn’t help but accept when The Attic in Santa Cruz offered them a gig that December. Since then they have been invited to play all sorts of things from festivals (Good Old-Fashioned, Far West, SF Bluegrass & Oldtime, SF Folk Festival, High Mountain Hay Fever Festival in Colorado) to private events, from opening for Robert Earl Keen and Dale Anne Bradley to The Great Chicken Coop Revival.
