The Merry Wives of Windsor is an all-female folk band based in California. Blending elements of North American, British Isles, and Contemporary Folk music, the foundation of the Merry Wives’ sound is rich four- and five-part vocal harmonies, with support and ornamentation by acoustic folk instruments. A collaborative group, the Wives bring a unique sensibility to every song they perform, from traditional Irish pieces, to original compositions that range from beautiful to bawdy.
