McKendree Presents: The Wee Heavies
Back by popular demand! The Wee Heavies have won a following with its eclectic mix of Scottish, Irish, and American folk music, which combines tradition, innovative original arrangements, and moving interpretation. Dedicated to music from and influenced by the Celtic tradition, tenors Aaron Schiltz and Peter Merideth, baritone Jay Harkey, and bass Steve Neale began singing together in St. Louis’ Shaw neighborhood in 2013 after they observed a distinct lack of a cappella Celtic music at charitable events. They create a sound rich in harmony with unexpected twists and an energy that has audiences clapping, stomping, and singing along.
