Good Morning Bedlam has become an innovative force in the Midwest folk scene. Their shows are known for their contagious energy. With tight soaring three-part harmonies, they captivate their audience night after night with no intention of slowing down. Every song is a unique twist on what is generally dubbed as folk music. You will be treated to haunting waltzes, whistling, jazz scatting, and the euphoria of violin melodies.

 

“When Good Morning Bedlam plays a show they want the audience to experience the emotions in the music itself. Their songs are stories, and stories bring people together.”
