Dust Bowl Faeries

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. Hazel, a taxidermy sheep, performs with the Dust Bowl Fairies as mascot spirit animal/go­-go dancer.
