The Blue Eyed Bettys are easily the most exciting Americana act to hit Sarasota... Their sweet harmonies drive smart originals and judiciously chosen covers.”
- Wade Tatangelo, Sarasota Herald Tribune

"The Blue Eyed Bettys lit up the stage... with a mix of tunes that was part traditional and mostly innovative. And it was damn good."
- Doug Thompson, Blue Ridge Muse

“Their theater-influenced performances and immaculate harmonies have earned them the admiration of local musicians and showgoers alike.”
- Nick Friedman, This Week in Sarasota

“...they had us in the palm of their collective hand... halfway through their set, the whole bar was in on the love.”
-The Scenestress, Herald Tribune

With Daniel Emond on banjo, Sarah Hund on fiddle, and Ben Mackel on guitar, The Blue Eyed Bettys delight with their folky-bluegrass sound. But what always seems to grab audiences immediately are their powerful vocals in three part harmony. All actors by trade, The Blue Eyed Bettys met while doing a new play together at the Florida Studio Theatre in Sarasota, FL. They are singers and storytellers first; therein lies their ability to turn boisterous bars into attentive listening rooms and sleepy pubs into raucous parties as they weave stories with their exuberant performances.
