The Back Alley Betties are an acoustic quartet from Lincoln, Nebraska. The group is made up of Paul Ries (Upright Bass), Anne McConkey, Bob Hedrick (both on Mandolin, Guitar and Vocals) and Sue Hedrick (Ukulele and Vocals). Six years ago they met at a “Steve Hanson Bluegrass Camp” in Long Pine, Nebraska where they immediately bonded over their shared musical tastes and once Anne moved to Lincoln, in 2018, the Betties were born.
The Betties style can best be described as an acoustic blend of folk, Celtic, rock, bluegrass and original compositions. Some of the artists they cover are the Beatles, Karla Bonoff, Crosby Still and Nash, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Springsteen, Dacey Musgraves and many others.
