Calliope encourages all of us to explore the breadth of our musical roots and engage with our musical heritage.
Bertha and the Belles is a new band on the Pittsburgh music scene. This acoustic quartet features the powerful singing of Pam Hawley, the remarkable fiddling of Alice Backer, the lovely, rootsy vocals of Annie Trimble, AND some of the best duet and trio vocal harmony around. In addition, the powerful rhythm section of Annie’s guitar, Pam’s banjo uke, and “Bertha” — Richard Gordon’s bass — provides a solid backdrop for an exciting mixture of country, swing, spiritual, old-time and other folk music.
