The Boomtown Waifs are:
Kelley McCulloch McLachlan - Guitar, Vocals
Kristen Harris - Fiddle, Vocals
The musical union between Kelley and Kristen began in 2012, when the two musicians joined forces as part of the female folk trio The Prairie Willows. Their sound integrated 3-part harmonies, old time fiddle, and sorrowful songwriting. Their music quickly evolved into their now spirited multi-instrumental folk and Americana sound with a soulful twang, featuring an assortment of talented back-up musicians, and, of course, the two leading ladies. The uniting of these strong female vocals with guitar, fiddle and varying other instrumentation gives The Boomtown Waifs a flavor of ruckus and delight that audiences love to be a part of.
Kelley and Kristen are frequently joined by their talented friends Darren Woodlief, Branhan Lowther, Craig Butterfield, Zachariah Jones, Sean Thomson, Evan Simmons, and Mike Scarboro.
