Turnip the Beet (Kelsey Wells, Jeremy Lekich) Jesse Edgerton calling

Turnip the Beet is a dance band duo from Nashville, Tennessee. Rooted in the traditions of Southern Appalachia and their local contra dances, Kelsey Wells and Jeremy Lekich combine fiddle, banjo, guitar, percussion, and the occasional mbira in an innovative and jubilant musical harvest. Expect to hear an organic mix of eclectic tunes from the American South, Ireland, Cape Breton, Quebec, and Scandinavia, as well as a half-bushel of grooving, homegrown originals.

Kelsey Wells – fiddle, banjo, mbira, feet, vocals,
Jeremy Lekich – guitar, octave mandolin, djembe, vocals
