Additional Information

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.

The Intercultural Improvisation Ensemble experiments with different world music styles and traditions. Musical arrangements will blend different musical instruments representing such diverse world areas, and the elements of improvisation will play an essential role in the creation of new and/or traditional pieces of music.
