Sweet Betsy
Updates Shows Music .Bio .Contact

Sit back and take it in... be prepared to hear something a little different. Stroll with Sweet Betsy through the musical past and present as you hear the echoes of Folk, Country, and Americana blended together to create their own original, genre-defying style.
   With the stripped down simplicity of just a guitar and mandolin as the bones, you'll be drawn in by what it's really all about, the song, and how its sung... and if you only listen to their recordings, you might swear their sibling-like harmonies are provoking the ghosts of old-time family groups and duos like the Carters or Stanley Brothers... that's the sound of Sweet Betsy.
