A multi-generational Stringband with roots in Traditional American Old Time Music. Wicked Children plays traditional and new, Appalachian-style fiddle music with a focus on strong fiddling and a compelling groove. Members of the band are: Judy Hyman (fiddle) and Jeff Claus (banjo uke and guitar) of The Horse Flies; brothers Gus (fiddle, guitar, and banjo uke) and Huck (fiddle and percussion) Tritsch, of Wicked Chicken; Steve Selin (guitar) of Evil City String Band and Rose and the Bros; and Sally Freund (bass) of Rose and the Bros and Small Tattoo. Huck and Gus placed 1st and 2nd , respectively, in the 2019 youth fiddle contest at Clifftop Appalachian Festival in WV, and Gus won best original fiddle tune. Also, a slightly different configuration of Wicked Children (including Gus, Huck, Jeff, and Sally) placed second in the neo-trad band category. Members of the band have extensive, relevant history, including major label albums; touring in the U.S., Canada, and Europe; recording and touring with Natalie Merchant; performing on Late Night with David Letterman; creating film scores for feature films; making incredible cider; and more.
