Hey, Chère!
Hey, Chère!
Hey, Chère! is winning audiences over to Cajun music one barroom at a time. It’s a joyful, haunting, infectious ride that awakens the sleepiest hearts (and feet). It makes you feel good. The front porch–style band features Angela Bowman on voice and fiddle, Sean Colledge on accordion and voice, John Huber on guitar, and Jeff Yonkus on fiddle. Everyone takes a turn at the triangle.

ETHAN KINSELLA After graduating from college in 2014, Kinsella set out to pursue a career in music. He toured the U.S with an Americana band--a two-month long tour that spanned the East Coast, five Southern states, and the North Country--playing at house parties, dive bars, backyard BBQs, coffee houses, church sanctuaries, hair salons, and plenty of busking on street corners and subway platforms. It was during this time that Kinsella more strongly developed his singing voice, as many of the performances were acoustic and unplugged.

Upon returning to Chicago, his hometown, he immersed himself in the bluegrass and country scene, with the intent of finding musicians to start a honky tonk country band. He would frequently attend bluegrass jams, hootenannies, and open mics, where he would sing Hank Williams and his own originals played in a classic country style. Kinsella was able to find musicians to form a band that would capture the "classic" country sound that he so admires. His band enjoys a monthly residence at Friendly Tap in Berwyn, and has most recently released a 5-track EP called Indigo Whippoorwill. Kinsella was the lead in the Hank Williams tribute show "Lovesick Blues" which played in theaters around the country. Kinsella is actively writing and performing around the Chicago area.

Jess's musical language ranges from orchestral and chamber violin to Old-Time fiddle and original song. Hailing from Southeast Wisconsin, she studied the Suzuki violin method from age five with highly esteemed teacher and pedagogue, Carol Waldvogel - once a student of Dr. Shinichi Suzuki himself. Jess's first introduction to traditional American music came much later from Old-Time luminaries Bruce Molsky, Roy Andrade, Stephen "Sammy" Lind, James Bryan, Lee Sexton and Bruce Greene at fiddle camps and in college. Jess earned a degree in Bluegrass and Appalachian Studies from East Tennessee State University before going on to complete a Bachelors of Social Work and Spanish from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. She has since grown into an adept old time fiddler and guitarist, and stretches her social work muscle as a teaching artist at Chicago's infamous Old Town School of Folk Music and camps such as Augusta Heritage Center's Old Time & American Vernacular Dance Week (Elkins, West Virginia) and Miles of Music Camp (New Hampshire & Boston). In 2015 she collaborated playwright Damon Kiely and the House Theatre of Chicago, composing an all-original score of old time/gospel music for the play, The Revel, received with venerable reviews - Chicago Tribune and Chicago Sun-Times links below.
