Dust Bowl Faeries play an exotic medley of Dark Carnival dream music. The unique compositions of Dust Bowl Faeries have roots in klezmer, circus and post-punk music. Accordion, singing saw, ukulele, lap ­steel, electric guitar, bass & percussion combine to create the Dust Bowl Faeries’ otherworldly sound. The band was founded by artist­-musician Ryder Cooley in 2013 as a girl group trio. The group has now expanded to include five generations of musicians including Karen Cole, Jen DuBois, JoAnn Stevelos and Aaron Martin. Hazel, a taxidermy ram, joins the Faeries as mascot-spirit animal. Their debut album was released in 2016 and features guest musicians Melora Creager (Rasputina) & Tommy Stinson (Replacements).
