Alaska String Band

This family-friendly performance artfully weaves a tapestry of atmospheric impressions giving an intimate peek into the curiosities of one of Alaska’s treasured and pristine wilderness escapes. Moving along at a lively pace, American-roots music favorites are showcased touching on genres such as swing – jazz – bluegrass – pop – dawg – gospel, Hawaiian and Celtic. Of particular interest are original tunes composed and sung by this ensemble which reflects the hardship of the gold fever experience. As gifted multi-instrumentalists the family often swap instruments throughout a performance with an impressive collection of acoustic stringed instruments including guitars, violin-fiddles, mandolins, dulcimer, banjo, bass, ukuleles and percussion; knitting it all together are the Z family signature vocal harmonies.
