Old-Time String Band
David Bragger, director

The Old-Time String Band Ensemble performs traditional music of rural America. This ensemble delves into the exciting old-time sub-genres of Appalachian fiddle and banjo music, Mid-West fiddle tunes, North Carolina and Georgia string band music, Cajun/Creole fiddle, traditional bluegrass, country blues, and jug band music, to name a few. This is the early country music of America in its crooked, colorful, droney, funky, lonesome, soulful, danceable, and back porch glory.
