The Don't Tell Darlings met years ago on the windswept plains of southern Minnesota but now spend their evenings pickin' and singin' in the sweet Virginia hills. They play a mix of long-forgotten and well-remembered tunes, with a healthy scattering of Miss Millie's originals. Their repertoire weaves threads of the old-time, Western Swing, early country and blues, bluegrass, and jug band traditions. Imagine a Depression-era mix tape. At any given moment, the Darlings might be harmonizing like song birds, raising a proper ruckus, or both. With Megan on guitar and Millie on the banjo, their sound is characterized by tight female harmonies and a penchant for songs that let everybody know: these girls will fix your wagon, and that's a promise.
Here's a sample of their music. Enjoy!
