The Prism Coffeehouse in collaboration with WTJU 91.1 FM are excited to present The Wildmans. This up and coming neo-traditional stringband come from the one stoplight town, Floyd, Virginia, in the heart of the Appalachian mountain music tradition. From campsite jamming at festivals and fiddler’s conventions and classical music education comes the foundation for musical exploration that sets this group apart, taking the audience on a musical journey that reflects the growth and passion of these talented young musicians.
All three young players in the group have earned many awards, including the famed Galax Old Fiddler’s Convention – in 2018 Aila Wildman won Best All Around Performer Award along with 1st place in Old Time Fiddle, Eli Wildman won 1st place in Mandolin (2018 and 2019), and Victor Furtado won 1st place in clawhammer banjo (2015, 2016 and 2019), as well as the prestigious Steve Martin Award for Excellence in Banjo (2019). Multi instrumentalist Sean Newman (Dharma Bombs) rounds out the group on upright bass and vocals.
