Prairie Rose & The Wildwoods are the love child of all things folk, Americana and country with a little on the side. Consisting of Arpita Shah’s longing lyrics to Ross Fairbairn’s folk inspired riffs, David Nicklen’s selection of guitar, uke and lap steel to the most recent of the pack, Colin Morris’s with his riding basslines and percussive talent of Roy Dahl.
Prairie Rose & The Wildwoods
Folk. Riot. Henry’s Cellar Bar, Edinburgh 2009: Prairie Rose and the Wildwoods’ first foray into the live music world. The guitarists are well versed for the stage with years of hard slog behind them. But the singer, this is her first. During Arpita’s tender recital of ‘Lonesome Town’ – broken glass, head butting, punching…welcome to the stage! Someone, somewhere, thought it a good idea to debut the band on a Cramps charity tribute night. Charity has a lot answer for.
