Emerging from the acoustic string band tradition, Quickdraw String Band plays a repertoire of Old-Time, Early Bluegrass, Country Blues, and Ragtime. They have been performing around Washington State for the past thirteen years. Their style is solidly grounded in acoustic tradition, but is hard to pack neatly into one singular genre. 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.
