About Betse and Clarke

Explorers of Ozark Music

This duo from the heartland (Kansas City, Missouri) has its roots in Ozark old time music, honoring traditional songs and tunes that resonate with human experience. Betse’s former band The Wilders were a huge hit when they performed at the Tolbooth before, and we are delighted she is back touring in the UK with her new musical partner.

For each concert setting, Betse & Clarke take an audience on a musical field trip. Betse Ellis plays powerful and beautiful old time fiddle tunes, sings traditional Ozark songs, and shares her own songs with themes relating to human experience. Expect her to tell some stories along the way, featuring personal moments with her fiddle mentor Violet Hensley. Long known for her energetic style in The Wilders, Betse’s earned a level of maturity while maintaining her contagious enthusiasm. Clarke Wyatt is an engaging finger-style banjo player, drawing inspiration from great traditional and inventive banjoists of earlier decades such as Mike Seeger and John Hartford.

Together since 2014, this musical couple has traveled across the United States and Ireland, from the Portland Old Time Music Gathering to Grand Targhee Bluegrass Festival, Walnut Valley Music Festival, John Hartford Memorial Festival, Guinness International Bluegrass Festival (Co. Waterford, Ireland), Bluegrass Music Festival (Ulster American Folk Park, Co. Tyrone, Northern Ireland) and Folk Alliance International Conference (as official selected showcase artists, and music camp instructors).

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Betse and Clarke are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
