Formed in the foothills of central Washington in the summer of 2015, the Killdeer String Band has been making a name for itself both regionally and beyond with their signature brand of energetic instrumental music. Performing at farmer’s markets, ale houses, folk festivals, and other cultural events, they perform a refreshing blend of original and traditional folk styles ranging from Celtic to Klezmer, and Bavarian to bluegrass. Whether it’s an Irish jig or a cover of Hey Jude, the Killdeer String Band explores the delicious boundaries of traditional acoustic music.
