Kelsey Wells came into the world with her feet still, her mouth shut, and her eyes wide open. Since then, she has discovered the joys of old-time fiddling, folk dancing, storytelling, and various other traditional arts. When she’s not playing music, Kelsey likes making crankies and teaching her pup, Isham, new tricks.

In addition to being the Beet, Kelsey also performs in a duo with Brendan Taaffe and with the new dance band Silver Sail, with Kristen Planeaux (the Ripples) and Miriam Larson (Mean Lids).
