The music of The David Wax Museum is described by  Entertainment Weekly as “Andrew Bird with a Mexican Folk bent.” The roots of David Wax Museum stretch back nearly a decade, and all the way from New England to Mexico. In Boston, he met fiddler/singer Suz Slezak, whose love of traditional American and Irish folk music fused with Wax’s Mexo-Americana into a singular, energetic blend that captivated audiences and critics alike.

Their 2010 breakout performance at the Newport Folk Festival made them the most talked-about band of the weekend, with NPR hailing them as “pure, irresistible joy.” They released a trio of albums that earned escalating raves everywhere from SPIN and Entertainment Weekly to the New York Times and The Guardian (which dubbed the music “global crossover at its best”).

Support is Carling & Will, which combine elements of traditional music with contemporary melodic instrumentation. Carling Berkhout and William Seeders Mosheim were playing old songs together on back porches before forming officially as a duo in 2016. Their self-titled EP is a collection of American tunes
and folksongs.
