The Wicked Chicken plays a mix of driving rock-and-roll, old-time fiddle, and blues. Armed with exciting new material, powerful groove, and a unique sound, the Wicked Chicken will surprise and captivate audiences of all varieties. The foundation of the band are the brothers Gus (guitar, vocals, fiddle) and Huck Tritsch (drums, percussion, fiddle). Gus and Huck have performed with distinguished musicians including the rock band Marah, and have earned recognition at various festivals and competitions including the Appalachian String Band Music Festival, known as Clifftop. The Wicked Chicken is constantly exploring different influences and sounds, and you never know what you might hear at any one show. But whether it’s old-time fiddle music, North Mississippi Blues, or driving rock & roll, The Wicked Chicken will play it with creativity, rhythm, and soul.

Mary Linscheid’s music is rooted in the forests and rivers of West Virginia, a place her family has called home since the end of the 18th century. Influenced by poet Louise McNeil, novelist Ann Pancake, and songwriter Hazel Dickens, her music digs into the deep connections between the land, community, and the self. Recalling the sounds of the old-time fiddle jams she’s attended since her early teens and the singing of her mentor Ginny Hawker, her debut EP, A Place to Grow Old, is a powerful call for connection and reconciliation in the face of powers that divide us. Linscheid is currently a student at West Virginia University, where she performs as part of the university’s bluegrass band.
