The Familiar Strangers play an Americana grab bag of music from western swing to blues to country, bluegrass and even a little bit of gypsy jazz! Perfect for smaller venues (no drums) they nevertheless generate a big response from audiences with their friendly banter and responsiveness to requests from audience members. This is a band with a sense of humor but can easily move between material designed to get you up on your feet dancing or tugging at your heart to buy another beer and lose your sorrows.
Candy Girard – fiddle, vocals & killer smile
Tim Sarter – bass, vocals & infectious friendliness
Kevin Russell – guitar, vocals & set list maker
And our occasional Stranger:
Joe Craven – mandolin, percussion, vocals
