CALENDAR ORIGINAL TUNES TUNEBOOK VIDEOS PHOTOS WINNIE

 

Box and String is the duo of Bill Quern and Sarah Gowan.
We play instrumental traditional roots music from the American Appalachians, England, Canada, Scandinavia, and France as well as our original music composed in traditional styles. With a combined instrument collection that includes guitar, mandolin, concertina, melodeon, 4 & 5 string banjo, fiddle, harmonica, jaw harp and foot percussion we provide a varied and entertaining program.

We enjoy playing for traditional dancing - squares, contra, French, waltz - as well as for listening and special events.
