The Beet Tops are an old-time string band on a mission to bring traditional music and southern square dance to all corners of Montana. With roots from West Virginia to the West coast, they add a little sass and drive to a repertoire of Appalachian fiddle tunes, taking listeners on a musical tour that predates bluegrass and the invention of the steam engine. The Beet Tops are known for their ability to get folks moving — whether on the dance floor or in your backyard. The Beet Tops have played barn dances and festivals across Montana, including the Red Ants Pants Music Festival and Big Sky PBR. Band members include Claire Baer on fiddle, Rob Terwilliger on banjo, Brian Herbel on guitar, Travis Yost on bass, and Chelle Karcher on fiddle or calling square dances.
