Turbo-Charged Folk

Sons of the Never Wrong stretch the range of three-part harmony, representing the future of folk music.

Their unusual vocals float atop witty, whimsical, original songs that are filled with joy, poignancy, improvisational hilarity and remarkable musicianship.

Hailing from different disciplines – Sue Demel studied jazz, Deborah Lader played bluegrass and Bruce Roper was raised on folk music – the members of the band come together marvelously when singing. And when dancing and goofing around onstage.

The Chicago trio has produced three popular CDs and has been compared to the Roches, the Neilds, and Peter, Paul & Mary...with a decidedly offbeat perspective.
