Ladybird
Ladybird
Ladybird's roots first took hold on a front porch in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Now flourishing and spreading towards audiences all across America, Ladybird brings their unique and eclectic folk sound to the ears of many. Whether playing a show in someone’s living room or for a sold-out theater, the women of Ladybird bring their sweetness, humor, and talent to every song they sing.

Brought together by their mutual love of the traditional American songbook, Ladybird draws on their multi-dimensional background to create a sound that echoes like a wind through the Appalachian pines. Never limited to one style, they draw on European classicism, Swedish folk, jazz, bluegrass - anything is fair game for these girls! Their original material is informed by these textures and brought to life by their instrumental abilities, but thrice as nice are their voices; “Emoting deep from the back of their throats, each artist nuanced not only with the character of her instrument but also with the individuality of her vocals,” (Tri-State Indie).

Named one of Philadelphia's best folk acts by WXPN, Ladybird has shared stages with prominent artists like Steep Canyon Rangers, JP Harris & Chance McCoy, and The Dustbowl Revival, and played prestigious venues and festivals such as Philadelphia Folk Festival, Tin Angel, and Chicago's Uncommon Ground. Ladybird's premiere EP, "Hey There, Ladybird!" was named in the Top Ten of 2016 on WPKN Radio Connecticut.
