About the Event

The Wilder Flower has been building a sound together since meeting in 2020 at the Hagood Mill Fiddlers Convention, where each member has taken home multiple blue ribbons. The band's musical chemistry developed easily during their first practice, and they've been refining their sound and show ever since.
The Wilder Flower flexes between folk, Americana, bluegrass, and Old-time tunes. They thrice vocally on three-part harmonies, whether a two-chord old-time ballad, or a modern, minor-filled melody. Instrumentally, they feature bluegrass banjo tunes, fiddle and clawhammer string-band songs, flatpicking guitar tunes, and everything in between. Their unique sound is centered around original songs and tunes that are thoughtfully arranged and adapted to showcase their tasteful instrumental sensibilities. They flex between genres and writers in each song, but there’s something to their collective taste that speaks the same language, though switching dialects.
If you've been to a show, you know how lively they are on stage. Having years of experience dating back to their early teenage years, they are natural performers. As a band they enjoy engaging with audiences, telling stories, and opening up about their songwriting and musical process. Because of this openess, they create a meaningful shared experience with the audience at every show, and often leave people laughing. Their loyal audience members joke about returning again and again to their shows because the dialogue on stage is always unpredictable, and unmissable.
The Wilder Flower has opened for bands such as the Chatham Rabbits and the Tray Wellington band. They play festivals such as the Earl Scruggs Fest, High Mountain Hay Fever, Fall for Greenville, and Mountain Song Festival. They also play at staple venues such as 185 King Street in Brevard, The Radio Room in Greenville, and The Grey Eagle in Asheville.
