Dust Bowl Faeries is an ethereal gothic folk ensemble with a dark cabaret twist. The unique compositions of Dust Bowl Faeries have roots in Gypsy, klezmer, and vaudeville music. Accordion, singing saw, ukulele, lap steel, electric guitar, bass & percussion combine to create the Dust Bowl Faeries’ otherworldly sound. The band was founded by artist-musician Ryder Cooley in 2013. Ryder is accompanied by Karen Cole, Jen DuBois, JoAnn Stevelos & Aaron Martin. Hazel, a taxidermy sheep, performs with the Dust Bowl Fairies as mascot spirit animal.
