Share this event:

Originally formed in 1976 to serenade the racetrack crowd, this trio of regional folk superstars offers upbeat string band music with fiddles, 5-string banjo and acoustic guitar, featuring fun songs new and old, and fiddle instrumentals both lively and stately.

The Whippersnappers are multi-instrumentalists Peter Davis, George Wilson, and Frank Orsini. Davis is in WAMC's Dancing on the Air band, playing guitar, piano, and clarinet; Wilson is a traditional fiddler and banjoist who has played with Fennig's All-Stars and is a frequent performer at regional contra dances and folk festivals; and fiddler-mandolinist-guitarist Frank Orsini has played with bluegrass greats Bill Keith and Frank Wakefield.

Their latest album, Up Against It Now, is "a footstomping, ripsnorting collection of old-time music that juxtaposes country songs of the 1920s and '30s with Celtic fiddle tunes, and shows much but by no means all of what these three can do." Glenn Weiser
