About Us


The Fab Folk is Matt Weidauer and Jake Haws. They do folk renditions of songs by the Beatles, featuring vocals, acoustic guitars, mandolin and light percussion. Their sound is influenced by contemporary indie folk artists like Bon Iver, Iron & Wine, The Shins, Wilco and Fleet Foxes. They perform at special event occasions such as weddings and corporate events, as well as at festivals, clubs, restaurants and bars.

Matt and Jake are veterans of the Utah music scene, having performed both as solo artists and as members of Adding Machines, Mr. India and Declaration. Collectively, they have played hundreds of shows including performances at the Sundance Film Festival and opening slots for notable indie rock groups including Menomena, The Appleseed Cast, and 31 Knots. Their music has appeared in the films Scout Camp and Hanging Five. From 2005-2011, Jake also owned and managed Muse Music Cafe, a music venue and recording studio in Provo, where he hosted concerts and produced recordings for hundreds of local artists.
