Unsafe At Any Speed is a mixed
quartet composed of three men and one woman. Dick, Helen, Pete,
and Bert have been involved in folk
music since the early sixties and have been playing as a group
since 1991. Unsafe plays an eclectic mix of folk, country,
bluegrass, and gospel music accompanied primarily on six-string
acoustic guitar, five-string banjo, mandolin, dobro, and miscellaneous
special effects. Their repertoire includes popular folk songs of
the sixties as well as modern and classic country and bluegrass
tunes. They also perform a number of original compositions and
arrangements which range from humorous to inspirational. Unsafe
performances are characterized by crisp multi-part harmonies and
imaginative arrangements with a sense of humor and a touch of
the unexpected. Unsafe music is suitable for a wide variety of
settings including hayrides, campfires, banquets, festivals,
clubs, schools, and retirement communities. The members of
Unsafe reside in Bucks County, PA and Mercer County, NJ.
SOME KIND FOLKS HAVE SAID:
"... a nice warm way
with the audience...an honest and heartfelt interpretation of
these songs with a great down-home charm..."
-- Charlie Zahm, Celtic & Maritime Writer & Performer
"...[Helen] gives people
goosebumps when she sings..."
-- Ray Hunsberger, Manager, Perkasie Patchwork Coffeehouse
"Dear Unsafe team,
...Your wonderful music truly made it a joyous occasion.
Thank you for wrapping us up in such a happy sound..."
-- Mrs. Judith Langan, Bucks County, PA,
Rep. for the Fresh air Fund
"The sound and spirit of
'Unsafe' is as pleasing as a warm slice of apple pie. The
songs invoke a range of solid images, from Greenwich village's
cafés, midnight protests, to running moonshine in the Smokey
Mountains. Everyone who ever chewed on a long blade of
grass will enjoy their music."
-- Greg Kull, Entertainment Coordinator,
Farmhouse Entertainment, Inc.
