Emerging from the acoustic string band tradition, Quickdraw String Band plays a repertoire of Old-Time, Early Bluegrass, Country Blues, and Ragtime. Experienced and hard working, they have been performing around Whatcom County off and on for the past twelve years. Their energetic approach and innovative interpretations make it obvious to see how Quickdraw has become one of the most distinctive acts around Whatcom County. Their style often defies categorization into any singular genre, but is solidly grounded in acoustic tradition. Their sound consists of various configurations of mandolin, fiddle, guitar, dobro, and vocals. Quickdraw has fun playing music, and has shared the stage with other such notables as Foghorn String Band, John Reischmann and the Jaybirds, The Dunton Sisters, Cliff Perry and Laurel Bliss, The Clumsy Lovers, Maggies Fury, and Robert Sarazin Blake.
Quickdraw consists of Matt Novak, Dave Maguire, and Allegra Ziffle.
