Ask Your Folks is a Chicago-based trio comprised of vocals, guitar, fiddle, and string bass. Owen Burton, Libby Weitnauer, and Eli Broxham, began playing together during their freshman year at the DePaul University School of Music. The following year they started playing at Chicago farmer's markets and in 2013 formed Ask Your Folks. Writing continuously ever since, they have taken their large body of original music from the bustle of farmer's markets, into the intimate settings of house shows, concert series, and radio broadcasts. Though classically trained individually, collectively they are rooted in American styles like old-time, folk, and bluegrass. Ask Your Folks strives to create an eclectic sound with thoughtfulness at the core of its compositions and musicality at the heart of its performances.
