The Wanted

The Wanted fuse vintage North American folk, blues and country music with rockabilly, bluegrass and rock and roll in a distinctive roots music mash-up. The Wanted reconstruct an eclectic mix of classics and infuse their own songs with a spirit that is darkly haunting, incisively witty, or just plain fun. This is full-throated, full-throttle entertainment, filled with edgy licks, infectious rhythms and soaring harmonies, combining traditional instrumentation with unique elements such as washboard, bodhran, and acoustic lap steel guitar. There’s a small orchestra of instruments here that a mere few musicians manage to deploy with great skill—forging a fresh sound by finding common ground in diverse material.
