The Wilders are from Kansas City, and they are proud of that fact. During their show to a happy vocal crowd in the basement of The Slaughtered Lamb we were entertained not just by the tightest honkytonk/bluegrass imaginable, but also with happy banter & asides about ‘the great State of Missouri’.
Somehow they managed to get the normally reticent London crowd all to sing along to spirituals & country classics. We danced, we sang, one of us cried (not me of course). All are stunningly talented, comfortable on stage & funny, but fiddler Betse Ellis stands out. They are in the UK for the next couple of weeks, so if you know anyone out in the sticks give them a treat & tell them to get along to see the best band from Kansas City that they have never heard of.
