About

LIVE BAIT has been playing music together in various incarnations for the better part of a decade.  We cut our teeth playing traditional string band music at contra-dances at the Trenton Grange.  At some point we hit the harder stuff.  Founding members Sheila Unvala (fiddle), Sepp Huber (piano, accordion, banjo) and Curtis Russet (guitar) hail from Steuben, at the mouth of the mighty Tunk Stream. We thank our lucky stars to have found Tom Boutureira, who is willing to lug his drums all the way down from Machias to play with us. Don Roberto Sanchez, comes from Perry, which is even further, and has taken over the bass chores, although he is also a wicked good guitar player!
