Lotus is a banjo folklorist, bluesman, poet, fiddler and father. His thought-provoking show includes stories, jaw-harps and his controversial contrabass harmoniphoneum. Lotus has produced recordings for children’s television, animation projects, and JUNO award winner Jenny Whiteley.
In the decades which book-ended the turn of our century, Lotus Wight embraced the music over which he had obsessed since his childhood. He dwelled in the cradles of their conception and birth. The Carolinas, the Mississippi Valley, West Virginia, Kentucky, and New England fed him the sounds of tradition and helped to form his musical life.
