Wildcat Canyon is Art Peterson – vocals, accordion, Stephanie Costanza – fiddle, Laurie Miller – vocals, bass
Wildcat Canyon has been playing bay area contradances for over ten years and is also experienced in country, blues, norteno, and other genres. Band leader Art Peterson, a founding member of Those Darn Accordions, formed Wildcat Canyon and the Polka Cowboys when he left TDA back in 2000. Stephanie Costanza has fallen in love with fiddle tunes and is a classical violinist who performs regularly in orchestras, chamber groups and eclectic musical ensembles throughout Northern California. Laurie Miller heads the “Possum Family Singers” at the Starry Plough in Berkeley. She’s played bass for 25 years in the Bay Area after gigging on drums for many years in Rock and Roll venues. She brings that rock steady pulse to the lower end of “Wildcat Canyon”.
