"Defiant, young—powerful and undaunted"
Named among Yahoo Music’s “Top 10 Bands to Watch in 2017,” The Accidentals began their adventure in their hometown of Traverse City, MI, when Katie Larson, a sophomore cellist, and Savannah Buist, a junior violinist, were paired for a high school orchestra event. The gifted young musicians became fast friends and before long, bandmates. Dubbing themselves after the musical notes that fall outside of a key signature, they were joined in 2014 by percussionist Michael Dause, and since then national attention has increasingly come their way. Along the road, where they've performed more than 1,000 shows over the last five years, they been open to and influenced by a dizzying variety of musical genres, from classical music to hip-hop. Signed to the major Sony label in 2017, the band has released two albums, including the recent and politically aware "Heavy Flag." See them in the intimate confines of The Ark while you still can!
