Product Notes

The Plum Creek String Band plays post-modern Appalachian-Jamaican groove music: West Virginia meets West Jamaica and goes out dancing. They combine infectious acoustic rhythms with tight vocal harmonies. The range of the Plum Creek sound extends from firey fiddle tunes to the roots of reggae to ballads you'll not soon forget. The primary roots of this sound are American old-time-- particularly it's Apppalachian strains-- and Mento, the predecessor of Jamaican reggae and ska. The expression of this fusion is further informed by blues, jazz, classical and Celtic music, creating a compelling patchwork from diverse scraps. The band coalesced as a quartet in the summer of 2004 after playing in various combinations of two or three over the preceding two years. Oberlin, Ohio is the place that brought the band together. Jamie, Bruce and Marion are all graduates of Oberlin College and Eric teaches at Oberlin. The Plum Creek String Band is versatile in presenting great live concerts and thrilling dances. For the past several years they've been featured performers for the Dandelion Romp, Northeast Ohio's premier dance festival.
