Wallis Bird is a joyful musician who is an incredibly, emotionally exciting live performer and songwriter. Originally from Ireland, Wallis suffered a major hand injury as a child that left her fingers permanently marred on one hand. She was able to work around that and become a stellar guitarist. One of seven children, she grew up around her parents’ pub and witnessed a number of interesting characters in an experience that helped inform who she is. On Basic Folk we talk about her upbringing, her views on faith and spirituality, her immediate attraction to the guitar (starting with her first guitar at 6 months,) and much more!
