The Strings Attached project has produced its fourth collection of American roots music this summer at the Native Sound recording studio in the Cherokee Street Arts District with the help of local roots musicians and vocalists. We’ve explored the sounds of rockabilly music classics such as, “Guitar Boogie,” “Honey Don’t,” “Mystery Train,” “Rebel Rouser” and “Sleepwalk.” Have a listen and we hope you enjoy it as much as we had recording it!
“Rockabilly Rebellion” by Strings Attached is available for download at Amazon, iTunes and CD Baby now! Buy and Download at ROCKABILLY REBELLION! To support Strings Attached and its programs.
The Strings Attached project connects youth, ages 5 to 17, with music education using American roots music. We learn to play instruments such as guitar, ukulele, dobro, banjitar and mandolin. If you would like to learn more about the project, please click on the file symbol above and to the left.

MAKE MUSIC DAY is an annual city-wide celebration of music that takes place on June 21. Anyone and everyone is invited to either join and play music, or host performances. Completely different from a typical music festival, Make Music Day is open to anyone who wants to take part. Every kind of musician — young and old, amateur and professional, of every musical persuasion — pours onto streets, parks, plazas, and porches to share their music with friends, neighbors, and strangers. All of it is free and open to the public.
Strings Attached project celebrated the day by playing music in front of the Ferguson Public Library, continuing our commitment to promote music education through libraries.
Strings Attached had a community ice cream social at the Whistle Stop Ice Cream Train Depot for the 2nd Annual “Play Music on the Porch Day.”
Throughout history it was common to hear live music on porches, in yards and on street corners. Musicians would regularly surround themselves with friends and family to sing and play music together. This tradition is being lost as more people only experience music as passive entertainment instead of as a participatory celebration of life.
PLAY MUSIC ON THE PORCH DAY invites musicians to revive the tradition of gathering, singing and playing music outside with friends and family.
Join Strings Attached and Ferguson/Florissant School District’s Little Creek Nature Center on Saturday, October 28th for the annual Fall “Homecoming” celebration. Explore Little Creek’s 90 acres of wooded trail, refreshments and family activities while Strings attached provides some music!
