Triple Chicken Foot is an Old Time trio playing fiddle and banjo tunes and songs throughout Los Angeles with Ben Guzmán on fiddle/mandolin, Mike Heinle on banjo and Kelly Marie Martin on guitar. At many a late night jam, they've soaked up fiddle tunes and gospel songs, and have found their voice with foot stomping dance tunes, beautiful duets and intense three part harmony of a cappella ballads. In 2011, Triple Chicken Foot was voted “Best Folk Band in LA” by LA Weekly, and in 2012, they had a full-length feature article in the Los Angeles Times and a studio session for Roz Lurman’s FolkScene radio show on KPFK. They've performed at the Autry National Center, LACMA, The Watkins Family Hour, NPR, and have been featured at local and regional festivals, including Goleta Fiddlers Convention, Topanga Banjo and Fiddle Contest, the New Los Angeles Folk Festival, the Portland Old Time Gathering, the Berkeley Old Time Music Convention, and on the Palomino stage of the Stagecoach Festival. The band tries to honor the tradition of the roots of this music as an oral and community-based experience by hosting monthly jams, square dances with caller, Susan Michaels and in producing the annual Los Angeles Old Time Social.
