The Reckless Abandoners are an entertaining six-piece acoustic band playing an eclectic mix of bluegrass and old time Americana with touches of blues and Western Swing. Led by Yorkshire-based bandleader and lead vocalist Maria Wallace, the Abandoners hail from across the UK and bring a blend of big soulful vocals, lovely  harmonies and fantastic musicianship on mandolin, guitar, fiddle, dobro and double bass (and sometimes banjo). The band’s 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!
