The Wee Heavies (Jay Harkey, Peter Merideth, Steve Neale, and Aaron Schiltz) began singing together in 2013. Dedicated to music from and influenced by the Celtic tradition, the mostly a cappella band sings mainly their own arrangements in an eclectic mix that runs the gamut from traditional to modern. The group, based in Saint Louis, MO, has been steadily making a name for themselves over the past few years. Whether singing at major festivals or at more intimate gatherings, their ability to connect with their audiences immediately and in a meaningful way is notable. The rapport of the group brings humor to their shows, and their musical storytelling combined with the fine blend of their voices makes their singing memorable. The band has released two albums: a self-produced self-titled first album, and Times Long Gone their second album, produced by Brian McNeill.
