I perform bluegrass banjo both solo and with my quartet 'The Tishomingo String Band'. With the band we are able to play both traditional bluegrass and contemporary crowd pleasers and have been warmly recieved at festivals, bars and private events (weddings, parties).
I am also a banjo teacher and teach out of my studio in Coquitlam.
They were punctual and professional. Obviously all very professional musicians. They were finding Perfect for our age group of 30s to 70s. Would hire them again
The Tishomingo String Band provided lively music for our wedding; the guests had a wonderful time. We loved that everyone danced.The band was very accommodating to all our requests and quick to reply when we had any inquiries. I would recommend them unreservedly.
The band was personable and looked like they were having fun playing together. It was the first time some of the band members played with each other but it didn't matter, they were tight and animated. My husband loves bluegrass and it was just a perfect addition to his 70th birthday party. He and our guests loved every minute!
The Tishomingo String band recently performed for an event I hosted. The were absolutely fantastic. Their warmth and sincerity absolutely shined through in their fun loving and energetic music. Everyone was dancing, clapping their hands to the tunes and stomping their feet to the beat. I would highly recommend them for any occasion.
Your performance in Victoria Sept. 24th, 2013 was exceptional! I have played guitar and taught for over 50 years. The intricate weave of instruments made me want to learn banjo, mandolin and bass! The very entertaining show demanded an encore. Would like to hear a sample of the music on this website.
