The Wiyos are Michael Farkas – harmonicas, washboard, percussion. Teddy Weber – guitars, steel guitar, cornet, percussion. Sauerkraut Seth Travins – bass, guitar.
The Wiyos have been touring and recording since 2002. They were one of the first “old-timey” bands to emerge on the national scene in the first wave of acoustic bands riding the renewed popularity of early swing jazz, rural folk, old-time blues and Appalachian music. Their relentless touring in the US and Europe, and numerous critically acclaimed albums and EPs landed them a full 28-day summer tour as openers of the 2009 Bob Dylan Show.
