The Whateverly Brothers
The Whateverly brothers have been performing for wide ranges of audiences – young and old, small and large alike – for over a decade and wherever the Brothers go, the fun follows. The Whateverly Brothers grew out of three friends enjoying playing music together. Starting as a maritime music group, they soon followed their wide interests and backgrounds into many styles and genres including full Celtic and Yule sets. Dan Roberts, Chris Glanister and Rob Kneisler, all seasoned folk music collectors, performers, and multi-instrumentalists, have delighted audiences with their varying repertoire, shimmering harmonies, striking arrangements, and offbeat humor. A power group, tight and expressive.
