"Quite simply put, the Crane Wives are the vanguard of the new generation of blues, folk, and anything in the middle. Between haunting three-part harmonies, thunderous drums, and potentially the most addictive banjo you have ever heard this new band out of Grand Rapids, MI has what it takes to help bring folk into the 21st century."
