Vandoliers are the next wave of Texas music. The six-piece Dallas-Fort Worth group channels all that makes this vast state unique: tradition, modernity, audacity, grit, and—of course—size. Formed in 2015, the self-proclaimed “Converse cowboys” emerged from a group of Dallas-Fort Worth musicians who’d already logged more than a decade in their own punk and folk bands. Vandoliers mix raw, rough-edged roots music with the focused, fiery storytelling of frontman Joshua Fleming.

Rachel Baiman has spent the last decade working as a musician in a wide variety of roles, from session musician (Molly Tuttle, Kelsey Waldon, Caroline Spence), to live sidewoman (Kacey Musgraves, Amy Ray), to bandmate and producer. She is known in the bluegrass and old-time world for her work with progressive acoustic duo 10 String Symphony.
