Br'er Rabbit was voted 2013's Best Band in Bellingham, Wash., by Cascadia Weekly. The group features multi-instrumentalists and vocalists Miranda Zickler, Zach Hamer and Nathan Hamer, and cellist Jillian Walker. Their music is influenced by artists ranging from Leadbelly to The Lumineers to create a foot-stomping sound that is both familiar and all their own.
The musicians are working on their debut album, which they plan to release independently this spring.
Br'er Rabbit will play at 9 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 8, at the Caldera Tap House, 31 Water St., Ashland. This is a free show.
