Sligo Creek Stompers
Sligo Creek Stompers Sligo Creek Stompers play a raucous but refined blend of traditional roots music: Appalachian & Midwestern old time and bluegrass, New Orleans ragtime and traditional jazz, haunted Irish fiddle tunes and gypsy swing. Inspired by scratchy 78 rpm records, contra dancing and a good bottle of whiskey, the Stompers are keeping the flame of American stringband music alive in the Washington, DC area. You can find them playing at barn dances, in local bars, or inciting guerilla jam sessions or square dances in unexpected sections of the city.
