Wendy and the Lost Boys / Press

“ When she’s not drawing intricate henna designs on festivalgoers’ arms and legs around town, washboard enthusiast, fiddler and folk singer Wendy Rover is jamming with her y’all-ternative roots band The Lost Boys – Christian McKee on vocals, mandolin and mandola; Phil Garfinkel on vocals and guitar; Paul Prato on bass. Rover’s vocal stylings are rooted in the pre-World War-II era of American music – she’d be happier to sit in with Bessie Smith or Billie Holliday than Lady Gaga, that’s for sure. And Portland’s roots music scene is certainly the richer for that, by Goddess.”
