About This Show
The Folks are hitchin' up the sleigh to bring you their signature Story, Song and Sass - with a seasonal twist. Join Betsy and the Boys as they celebrate the holidays with charming tales, Yuletide classics such as "Sleigh Ride," country gems like "Christmas Time is a-Comin'," haunting folk melodies including "Bright Morning Stars," and a medley of holiday hymns, as well as original tunes like "I-90 Take Me Home, " and "The Threshold" that are sure to become folk favorites.
She’s Folks! is a little bit country, a little bit rock ‘n’ roll, and a lot of laughs. Journey from the city to farm country and back again through folk and country music, hilarious stories, soaring harmonies, and a wry view of the folks back home. We narratively travel our native Midwestern byways, railroads, and fields by truck, train and tractor, introducing the audience to original tunes such as "Little Town Girl," Trains," "Back Home," and "The Truck Stop Where I Hung Out in High School," as well as beloved folk songs, covers, and hymns.
We happily sit between genres and art forms integrating traditional folk, folk rock, bluegrass, gospel, and country music, comedy, theatre, and memoir all with a Midwestern spin. She's Folks! is a love letter to the country from a kid who couldn't wait to leave. Where do we belong if we walk away? We reckon, "Home isn't the place; it's the folks."
She's Folks! includes: Elizabeth Morgan, Tyler Thompson, Alex Newkirk, Ted Kitterman and Tyler Core
