Greenwood Sidee

Greenwood Sidee, founded in 2008, has won numerous awards throughout Arizona, including First Place two years in a row at the Wickenburg Bluegrass Festival and 2nd Place at the 2013 Pickin’ in the Pines Band Competition. Classically trained violinist Giselle Lee took up fiddle and Clawhammer banjo after falling in love with Old Time music. Giselle has won awards in both fiddle and banjo competitions and recently traveled to China for a 5 week, 25 concert, 24 city tour with Doc Rolland's Americana String Ensemble in July of 2014. Mark Hickler grew up in a musical family surrounded by the eclectic sounds of jazz, blues, and old time music. She is currently studying Biology [PreMed] at ASU's Honor's College. Mark focused on banjo, especially old time styles, and was influenced by the recordings of string bands of the 1930's. He delights in updating and bringing these historic sounds to life. Mark builds banjos for his own company, Hickler Banjo, as well as another company, White Mountain Banjo. One of his personal banjos is displayed in the Musical Instrument Museum on permanent display. Joelle Tambe-Ebot is a graduate of ASU in Kinesiology, competitive ballroom dancer, and an experienced, professional musician. Her steady bass work holds the trio together while her charismatic stage presence charms the audience. Greenwood Sidee is not only about Old Time music, they also enjoy performing the work of modern artists such as Regina Spektor and Bob Dylan.
