“Enchanting harmonies… note-perfect old-time fiddle playing…” --fROOTS Magazine
“Talented musicians and vocalists… impressive…” —Bluegrass Today
“Gifted songwriters, their songs are heartfelt, catchy, humorous, and somehow old-timey and brand new all at the same time” —For the Country Record
THE YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKERS perform original songs and tunes inspired by the classic hillbilly, country-duo, and old-time musical traditions--and also mines this same repertoire for forgotten gems that deserve to be heard again.
Based in Soldiers Grove, WI, the Sapsuckers (Nikki Grossman, guitar, fiddle, and vocals; Joe Hart, guitar, mandolin, and vocals) perform frequent concerts, as well as square and contra dances, and they are known for the light touch and sense of humor they bring to their performance.
They launched their 2018 album, "Don't Think About Tomorrow Tonight," at an official SXSW showcase, where they earned a standing ovation from attendees, as well as numerous Midwest tour dates. The album was co-produced by John Wood (Richard and Linda Thompson, Cat Stevens, Incredible String Band). Their 2015 album, "Ocooch Mountain Home," (their second), has received high praise from the likes of fROOTS, Bluegrass Today, and Country Music People UK.
In 2018, the Sapsuckers were nominated for Best Country Band in Wisconsin by the Wisconsin Area Music Industry Association.
