How’s about a little dose of sunshine? From Peoria, Illinois, The Way Down Wanderers play original, infectious, sophisticated roots-pop that will bring you a smile. These boys have a kind of big-hearted, humble swagger to aspire to!
“Somewhere on the spectrum between Old Crow Medicine Show and Mumford and Sons lies the spirited bluegrass-based artistry of The Way Down Wanderers. It is joyful, daring and occasionally sublime.” – Associated Press
“The Way Down Wanderers’ intricate, hypnotic rhythms call to mind ‘Bittersweet Symphony’ more than bluegrass traditional.” – Rolling Stone Country
We’re super happy to welcome these exciting experimenters to the music meadow this spring for their long awaited debut, originally planned for the canceled 2020 festival.
