DaddyLongLegs is the confluence of three well-known Vermont musicians whose talents merge to form a highly original acoustic trio. Infusing catchy folk songs, Celtic and “old-timey” melodies, and early minstrel and jazz pieces with passion and intricacy, DaddyLongLegs is playful and dynamic. Playing fiddle, viola, banjo, gourd banjo, piano, guitar, percussion, and vocals, DaddyLonglegs creates vibrant, sensitive, and surprising 21st-century folk music.
Seven Days’ music reviewer Dan Bolles wrote this about DaddyLongLegs’ new CD: "The band's debut is a finely curated collection of traditional tunes and originals, performed with exceptional skill and taste. It's also a remarkably warm-sounding record, engineered and mixed by Michael Chorney and mastered by Lane Gibson, two of Vermont's steadier hands behind the recording console.”
