The Wilder Flower is an all-female Trio from Pickens SC & Brevard NC. Growing up in the thick of bluegrass and old time, they all started at the age of 8. Between the YAM/JAM program, great teachers, & supportive parents, they have been pushed to stages like the IBMA, Merle Fest, and America’s Got Talent. The band recently met at Hagood Mill old-time fiddling competition where Madeline took the State Championship in fiddle, Molly placed first in banjo, and Danielle placed first in guitar. They now come together with a tasteful twist on their old time roots: Molly plays an intriguing combination of Scruggs & clawhammer style, Danielle is always in the process of songwriting, & Madeline’s nostalgic fiddling harnesses some of her favorite Irish & Jazz tunes. Their imaginative melodies & 3 part harmonies will transport you into the heart of Appalachia.
