Album Notes
StringFire features excellent musicians with great reputations in their own right. This frolicking, high energy group is guaranteed to get you grooving and inspire your dance moves. Often playing as a trio with JAMES MACQUEEN on fiddle, PATTI COBB tickling the ivories, ERIK IEVINS rounding things out on bass and cello, StringFire adds another fiddle whenever possible, choosing from a select group of high caliber players including Caroline McCaskey, Shira Kammen, and Annie Rodier.

StringFire's infectious spirit of fun infiltrates the hearts and feet of musicians and dancers alike. A mixture of classical training and a wide variety of experience yields an out-of-the-ordinary groove you won't want to miss! Drawing from Celtic, Klezmer, Blues and old-time traditions, StringFire takes pride in their well-rounded repertoire and working with callers to make music that enhances the dance experience. What callers and dancers say:
"Awesome! You guys are like a symphony on steroids!"
- Kelsey H.
"I love StringFire for their musicianship, choice of music, rhythm, phrasing, and improvisation. If I wasn’t having so much fun dancing to them, I’d be happy to just sit and listen to them."
- Craig M.
"StringFire is in the top echelon of hot West Coast bands!"
- Ben F.
"I'm always excited when I get to work with StringFire. For English, they have the skills and sensitivity to carry off musically-challenging programs beautifully and appropriately; for contra, they can excite and move a crowd with thrilling tunes and enormous musicality. If I'm working with them, I know it'll be a great night."
- Alan W.
"StringFire was a lot of fun to work with and I can't wait to do it again!"
- Kristin S.
