Americana, from the rapid-fire picking of bluegrass to the old-time stringband tunes of Appalachia, and from the country twang of Jimmie Rodgers to the engaging songwriting of Tom Waits and John Prine. This is folk music done right, the kind of music you'd be proud to bring home to your parents (just mind the furniture if they're actually playing in your parents' house). And that's because The Weavils are essentially a circle of great friends, brought together by a love for hot picking, cool tunes, and getting audiences on their feet. It's the same love that's driven folk bands since time immemorial, and it's this love that shines through on their new album, Starlight reel, and during their live performances.
"The Weavils were thoughtful, considerate, talented and so much fun! They were the perfect addition to our wedding day. Thank you thank you!"
- Jane S .
On stage and in the studio, The Weavils weave their way through a maze of influences, never losing sight of the roots that inspire them. It's all tied together by the essence of the best jam sessions: the relaxed fun of making great music with great friends. The Weavils don't polish off the edges of this music, instead they revel in the rough and rowdy nature of roots music, tied to the past but not beholden to a stuffy interpretation. Their music is vibrantly alive, hooting and hollering its way into a new age.
