One of the most interesting bands in the current day blues/rock scene are the Freewheelers Cello Band. Like the name already mentions, they play blues with a cello, not just a cello like other bands use, but a 6 string NS Design electric cello, played by one of Nashville's foremost players, Ilene McHolland. After performing on numerous country cd's she went touring in Europe, met Dutch bass player Bas Vossen, and together they first toured the EU, after which they went to live in the US, performing everywhere on the West Coast. Currently, the band is having a break from touring, with only a few scarce gigs to play, so the focus can be more on the production side. Contact: email@example.com
