The Wicked Chicken
Wednesday, Feb. 22, 7:30 p.m.
Campus Theatre, downtown Lewisburg
The Weis Center is partnering with Bluebird Atelier to offer a drop-off option for parents/grandparents attending The Wicked Chicken performance.
The Wicked Chicken plays a mix of driving rock ’n’ roll, old-time fiddle and blues. Armed with exciting new material, a powerful groove and a unique sound, the Wicked Chicken will surprise and captivate audiences of all varieties. The foundation of the band are the Tritsch brothers: Gus (guitar, vocals and fiddle) and Huck (drums, percussion and fiddle). The two have performed with distinguished musicians including the rock band Marah, and have earned recognition at various festivals and competitions including the Appalachian String Band Music Festival, known as Clifftop. In 2019, Huck Tritsch won first prize in the youth fiddle competition at Clifftop, and the Wicked Chicken placed second in the neo-traditional band competition. Gus Tritsch won the prize for best original fiddle tune as well. Most recently, Gus Tritsch toured with Jake Blount, a distinguished fiddle and banjo player from Providence, R.I. With Blount’s band, Gus Tritsch traveled extensively, including to Florida, Alaska and the United Kingdom. The Wicked Chicken is constantly exploring different influences and sounds, and you never know what you might hear at any one show. But whether it’s old-time fiddle music, north Mississippi blues or driving rock ’n’ roll, The Wicked Chicken will play it with creativity, rhythm and soul.
