Carnegie Hall Family Concert: The Wiyos

Zankel Hall
Capturing the vintage spirit of the ’20s and ’30s with an array of colorful instruments—harmonica, washboard, kazoo, string bass, and guitar—this band fills the stage with rich textures and sounds. Bursting with energy and charisma, the Wiyos invite kids and adults alike to holler, stomp, and sing along to old-time American folk music.
