From deep within the urban forest of Pittsburgh's East End, the Squirrel Hillbillies often emerge to share their eclectic mix of folk, country and blues.
Rabidly social and clawingly curious, they relish opportunities to interact with diverse audiences. They have performed more than 150 shows, including recent appearances at the Three Rivers Arts Festival in Pittsburgh and the Leigh Folk Festival in England.
Through a collaborative, nonlinear songwriting process, duo partners Jenny Wolsk Bain and Gary Crouth draw from personal experiences, third-hand stories, and vivid imaginations to craft songs that are unpredictable and quirky yet widely accessible. Their second full-length CD of original music, Goody Shoes, rose to #19 in the national Folk Music Radio Airplay Charts for May 2014, the month after it was released.
