Hawks and Owls String Band ~ Nobody's Darlin' Reunion


Wege Auditorium

1130 Wealthy St SE Grand Rapids, MI 49506

Starts: 7:00PM
Doors: 6:00PM

Nobody’s Darlin’, the preeminent West Michigan all girl string band, features Becca Ling on guitar, Barb Weatherhead on stand-up bass, Sara Quashnie on mandolin, and Natalie Beversluis on fiddle, singing warm and poignant vocal harmonies. They sing songs about “love, drinking, dying, and Jesus” to their audiences, with a wealth of old school Bluegrass songs and tunes, and the cherished folk music that has been shared in American sing-alongs.

As a singer-songwriter and an award-winning musician, Grand Rapids' Bruce Ling is a student and keeper of the history of the timeless musical genre known as Traditional American Music. He paints musical portraits celebrating the colorful history of the music, through an extraordinary repertoire of tunes, songs, and stories. He performs with equal flair and skill on fiddle, mandolin, guitar, banjo, cello, and slide guitar. Bruce is backed by his wife, world-class old-time rhythm guitarist Becca Ling, and longtime band member Barb Weatherhead on stand-up bass. Together they’re Hawks and Owls string band. Be prepared to take an enjoyable ride through a river of music and stories as presented by this trio of skilled musicians.

In 2020 these two groups were scheduled to share a billing at the Wealthy Theatre. Due to a medical emergency, Hawks and Owls string band had to bow out and the Darlin’s filled the bill. This evening of great music will complete that 2020 billing and re-connect us to our musical community.

All proceeds will go to support the Grand River Watershed Arts and Music Councils programs and work towards the perpetuation of Traditional American Music, and music education.
