Don't Tell Darlings

  • Potsdam Museum 2 Park Street Potsdam, NY, 13676 United States (map)

The Don't Tell Darlings draw their music from a deep well of Appalachian old-time, bluegrass, Western swing and early country, along with a healthy dose of fine originals by Ms. Millie (Camilla Ammirati, now of Canton). Defying genres, their music can be described as "a Depression-era mix tape." Megan and Millie's honey-sweet harmonies meet with Old Man Kelly's fiddle on fire and Lew Burrus' bass-thumping rhythm to bring you a delightful range of new songs that sound old and old songs that sound new. The Darlings have played throughout Virginia, the mid-Atlantic, and the northeast, including Johnny D's in Somerville, Massachusetts, Googie's Lounge in NYC, and a sneak appearance in duo form at the Buccaneer in Canton last spring. Though scattered from Virginia to the North Countries of both New York and Minnesota these days, they get together whenever they can to play music, coordinate their shoes, bake coconut cake, and generally make trouble.

Millie Ammirati: vocals, banjo, guitar, songstress
Lew Burrus: upright bass, occasional voice of God
Liam "Old Man" Kelly: fiddle, resonator guitar, pedal steel, washboard, kazoo
Megan Rose Orwig: vocals, rhythm guitar, mouth trumpet
