Jeff Burke and Vida Wakeman have been a musical partnership for over a decade, and in that time they have explored a variety of classic American music sounds, from honky-tonk to straight-ahead country to blues. But one genre in particular has provided the foundation to their musical approach, omnipresent and slowly culminating into their current and most focused sound.
Some musicians talk about a particular moment, concert or album that triggered a great musical epiphany that formed the rest of the musical career. For Jeff and Vida that moment came at the quintessential bluegrass music festival, Merle Fest.
“Neither of us grew up in bluegrass. We came at it pretty late,” Burke said in a recent telephone interview. “We went to Merle Fest and this light bulb went off in our head that we should play together. We started going to festivals and hearing it live, which to me is a whole other way to hear the genre.”
