Live and Local

Fiddler Betse Ellis


About a year ago, the Kansas City-based old-time quartet called The Wilders played in our area and made a live appearance on our show. The band is currently on break for 2012, but their fiddler, Betse Ellis, has struck out on her own and will return to Champaign for a solo performance this Saturday, along with a trio of local musicians. I'll talk with Betse Ellis on the Wednesday edition of Live and Local and sample her recent CD.
