The Alaska String Band (US) in concert

The best in Americana music!

The Alaska String Band is a dynamic five member family band whose family-friendly performance artfully moves along at a lively pace. American-roots music favourites are showcased touching on genres such as swing, jazz, bluegrass, pop, dawg, gospel, Hawaiian and Celtic.

As gifted multi-instrumentalists the family often swap instruments throughout a performance with an impressive collection of acoustic stringed instruments including guitars, violin-fiddles, mandolins, dulcimer, banjo, bass, ukuleles and percussion; knitting it all together are the “Z” family signature vocal harmonies.

The Zahasky family narration brings to life ancient customs and stories as well as an intimate peek at the lives of contemporary Alaskans - laced with humour, scandal, tragedy and celebration.

“The Alaska String Band are one of the most entertaining groups you will see. ”

“A perennial favorite in and around Alaska for their lively, high quality string music. Their concerts are relaxed, up-beat and charming. Audiences love them!"

“This group is polished and harmonies are totally off the charts. Not just your typical bluegrass group but truly a showstopper.”Visit their web site.
