The Wee Heavies
The Wee Heavies is a mostly acapella quartet dedicated to music in the Anglo-Celtic tradition. The Heavies (Aaron Schiltz, Peter Merideth, Jay Harkey, and Steve Neale) sing mainly their own arrangements in an eclectic mix that runs the gamut from the traditional to the modern. The group, based in St. Louis, MO, has been steadily making a name for themselves over the past two 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 humorous rapport of the group brings laughter to their shows, and their musical storytelling combined with the fine blend of their voices makes their shows memorable.
