Wyld Fern is a sibling duo who infuse multiple styles of music with the influences of Old-Time, Bluegrass and American Folk. Lake is a 9-year-old fiddle player and Brant is a 15-year-old guitarist, and with their recently added bassist, Owen Combs, this crew’s sound has rounded itself out in a wonderful way. The Old-Time sounds of their traditional family music dates back to the early 1900s from the mountains of North Carolina, but their sound remains fresh and modern all the same.
