"The Crawdiddies" / Bio

The Crawdiddies are a band on a mission. The goal? To find your heart string that shares the resonant frequency of your tailfeather and pluck it!

And pluck they do. Using traditional acoustic instruments, the Crawdiddies conjure an exciting musical experience. Drawing from several troves of American roots music including Delta Blues, Appalachian Old-Time, Bluegrass, and R&B, they are equally at home on stage or around the camp fire.

A staple of the Rochester scene, the Crawdiddies - Washboard Dave, Banjo Ben, Bassman Jay Chaffee, and the magnificent Heather Taylor - have created bluesy grooves all over the area from Lovin' Cup to Hose 22, Abilene and The Lilac Festival, and many private events. The coming year is an exciting time for the 'Diddies with the upcoming recording and release of their second full-length album.

"The whole band has a genuine casualness to it, which ultimately gets under collars and skin until you can't resist any longer." Frank DeBlase (Rochester City Newspaper)
