The Whistling Wolves have quickly become a favorite on the New York old-time scene, playing packed houses and sharing the stage with national acts like Bruce Molsky and Alice Gerrard.
THE WHISTLING WOLVES - Hot fiddle tunes, back porch torch songs, sweet waltzes, jug band blues and shape note hymns – this is the stuff of The Whistling Wolves. Coming from diverse backgrounds in old-time, blues, and rock 'n roll, the group has dug deep into American Rural music, bringing to the stage long-forgotten gems. The Wolves features the beautiful vocals and two-time world championship whistling of EMILY EAGEN, the tasty harmonica and bass singing of TRIP HENDERSON, the skillful pickin’ and singing of DANNY WEISS on vocals and guitar, the Jersey Kid CHRIS Q. MURPHY on vocals and assorted stringed instruments, and holding it all together playing bass is JAY BUCHANAN.
