With Daniel Emond on banjo, Sarah Hund on fiddle, and Ben Mackel on guitar, The Blue Eyed Bettys delight with their folky-bluegrass sound. But what always seems to grab audiences immediately are their powerful vocals in three part harmony. All actors by trade, The Blue Eyed Bettys met while doing a new play together at the Florida Studio Theatre in Sarasota. They are singers and storytellers first; therein lies their ability to turn boisterous bars into attentive listening rooms and sleepy pubs into raucous parties as they weave stories with their exuberant performances.
Don’t miss their return on the Amphitheater Stage Memorial Day from 3pm to 5pm.

With undeniable originality, the music pushes the nostalgic sounds of Memphis and Muscle Shoals, into modern and refreshing territory. The band combines passionate songcraft, 4 part vocal harmony, New Orleans trumpet, brilliantly voiced guitar chords, and one of the most creative rhythm sections in a long time.
