*The Wee Heavies (Aaron Schiltz, Peter Merideth, Jay Harkey, and Steve Neale) started singing together in the Shaw Neighborhood of St. Louis in 2013. The mostly a cappella band has won a following with their mix of Scottish, Irish and American folk music that combines tradition with innovation and weaves together a unique take on the songs they sing. With their voices (and occasional instrumental accompaniment) the Heavies create a sound rich in harmony with unexpected twists and an energy that has their audiences clapping, stomping, and singing along. Between songs, the lads are just as entertaining through their humorous rapport and engaging storytelling.
"Having the opportunity to hear such fine singing is a treasure and these lads have a very bright future indeed."
-Brian McNeill, Internationally Acclaimed ScottishSinger, Songwriter and Performer
*The Wee Heavies (pronounced "Wee" and then the plural of a thing that is Heavy) are named after a variety of Scottish beer that they unanimously don't recommend trying. It makes a great band name, though.
The Heavies have recently released their Second Album produced by acclaimed Scottish producer/musician/teacher, Brian McNeill.
The Wee Heavies are available for parties, festivals, weddings, and concerts.
