Dust Bowl Faeries founder, faerie queen Ryder Cooley in conversation with Andrea Cunliffe

Ryder Cooley is the founder of Dust Bowl Faeries, a dark-carnival band from the New York Hudson Valley. Their eclectic repertoire of songs draw inspiration from circus, post-punk and Eastern European folk music. Accordion, singing saw, ukulele, lap-steel, acoustic guitar and percussion combine to create the Dust Bowl Faeries otherworldly sound. HMM’s Andrea Cunliffe spoke with Ryder about the band’s upcoming shows.

The DUST BOWL FAERIES full band will be the Capital Region performing some new songs and a selection of their dark cabaret favorites on THURSDAY AUGUST 19th at 8pm at THE LINDA, and Saturday August 28 for the Troy Music Hall Square summer program.
