It's time to book Stringcaster. Yes, we're busy right now to book dates for the up-and-coming festivals.Our CD is to be released later this October and we're open for bookings. Our bio:
Five men with stringed instruments and a harmonica [John Burki, resonator guitar, mandolin, vocals; Martin Voogo, rhythm guitar, vocals; Jimmy Ellis, fiddle, mandolin; Robert van Driesten, harmonica, banjo, vocals; Marcel Verbaas, upright bass, vocals]
Seasoned musicians with their roots in blues, rockabilly, Irish folk, and country.Years of experience on national and international stages alongside renown artists such as James Burton, Rocky Burnette, Paul Burlison, Albert Lee, D.J. Fontana, Jim Weider, and Helen Watson.
The music is a mix of bluegrass, rockabilly, country and hillbilly. With driving harmonica, high-speed fiddle, hot-pickin' resonator guitar, twanging 5-string banjo, high-octane mandolins, pulsating rhythm guitar, and thumping double bass producing their own unique sound.
Covers and traditional music from the '40s & '50s. And some videos: 'Ole Slew Foot'; 'Rockin' chair money'; 'Stock car boogie'
