El Fin del Mundo
Hank Bradley and Cathie Whitesides are traditional folk music masters.
Hank’s Southern style fiddling began with time spent with Otis Burris and the Mountain Ramblers of Galax, VA in the 60s. He is also adept on Greek bouzouki, Croatian tamburitsa, mandolin, guitar, and banjo. His Poison Coyote Kid LP began his reputation as song and tunesmith of great wit, able to be all the instruments in the band. He has performed and taught nationally and internationally.
Cathie Whitesides took up Irish fiddle when she heard outstanding box players Joe Cooley and Kevin Keegan in San Francisco in the 70s. With Irish music held close, she dove into New England contra dance tunes and has fiddled at dances nationally and as far away as Odessa and St. Petersburg. Interest in Greek, Romanian and Serbian fiddle tunes intensified with her partnership with Hank.
Cathie and Hank have performed as a duo for 25 years and also perform in numerous other bands.
