Emerging from the American 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 the Pacific Northwest off and on for the past sixteen years. Their style 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, Maggie's Fury, and Robert Sarazin Blake.

Quickdraw String Band is Dave Maguire, Matt Novak, and Allegra Ziffle.
