BIO

Devilish Merry fuses improvisation with traditional and contemporary forms. The band has created a dynamic, layered, and driving brand of music that bridges cultural roots and produces a totally unique sound. 


The group’s music is centered around Appalachian songs and tunes that harken back to the Scots-Irish roots of the band members.  Devilish Merry mixes old-time mountain songs and square dance tunes with Celtic jigs and reels.  They go on to create their own new music, songs and dance tunes including waltzes that retain the feel of vintage themes and new music on traditional instruments.


Devilish Merry members are Sue Powers, banjo, vocals, Jeff Berman on lap dulcimer, percussion, Jan Hamilton on fiddle, LE McCullough, flute, tin whistle, harmonica, and Burr Beard on hammer dulcimer and vocals.
