Strings Attached project’s third collection of intergenerational recordings utilizing the developing talents of its students and seasoned local musicians. The project finds its home in American roots music genres, this time with a focus on cowboy and frontier American music.
Inspired by and covering the songs of Stephen Foster, Bob Wills, Jimmie Rodgers, writings of John A. Lomax and Hollywood’s cowboy craze of the “Golden Era.” We hope you enjoy it – Happy Trails!
STAY TUNED! NEW RECORDINGS COMING OUT THIS YEAR. We’re hard at work on our fourth collection of American roots music, this time ROCKABILLY! The Strings Attached project is producing new work at the Native Sound recording studio in the Cherokee Street Arts District with the help of local musicians. We’re exploring the sounds of rockabilly music classics such as, “Guitar Boogie,” “Honey Don’t,” “Mystery Train,” “Rebel Rouser” and “Sleepwalk.”
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.
