The hill country of Southern Illinois is home to one of the
Midwest’s friendliest and most talented musical trios – the Whistle Pigs.
Their live shows, consisting of vocal harmonies, banjo, accordion, and
upright bass, are energetic yet humorous and interactive, making them
suitable for the sit-down crowd as well the dancers and the drinkers.
Traveling over 70,000 miles and playing about 200 shows annually, the
Whistle Pigs have had the honor to share the bill with the likes of The
Legendary Shack Shakers, Split Lip Rayfield and Black Oak Arkansas while
playing at a wide range of venues including national festivals, ballrooms,
bars and dives, weddings and fish fries.
The Pigs combine old-timey and honky tonk musical sensibilities on such
originals as “I’m Broke”, “Alcohol”, and “Keep On Dreaming” throughout
both of their full length albums, the self produced “Long Term Plan”
(2009) and their debut album on Mudstomp Records, “Bless Your Hearts
and Livers” (2010).
