The Reckless Abandoners play an eclectic mix of bluegrass and Americana with touches of blues and Western Swing. Anchored by the big voice of Yorkshire-based bandleader Maria Wallace and silver throated mandolinist/guitarist Phil Stott, the Abandoners hail from across the UK, with a rotating cast of excellent acoustic musicians. With a blend of big soulful vocals, lovely  harmonies and top notch musicianship, the band features mandolin, guitar, fiddle, dobro, banjo and double bass in different combinations. The repertoire includes a handful of original songs as well as traditional standards and creative covers. The Reckless Abandoners are a breath of fresh air on the UK acoustic scene – come and see us at a gig or event, or get in touch to book us for your venue or festival!
