Hailing from California, The Ditty Bops are comprised of musical duo Abby deWald (vocals and acoustic guitar) and Amanda Barrett (vocals, mandolin and dulcimer). With six of their songs featured on the hit show Grey’s Anatomy, the quirky duo are establishing themselves as genuine innovators, playing a blend of folk, bluegrass, jazz, western swing, ragtime and musical theater. Having just completed a six month, cross-country concert tour – by bicycle – the highly theatrical Ditty Bops alight in Chicago to demonstrate their beguiling talents.
