Based in Edinburgh but play regularly throughout Scotland and across the UK.
The Homecoming String Band are an energetic celebration of the huge contribution Scotland has made to American Folk Music.
They bring some of the best music back over the Atlantic to find its roots. Old Time songs, ballads from the Appalachian mountains and foot stomping Bluegrass tunes are given a warm welcome home. Beautiful vocal and instrumental arrangements to charm the ear. Full pelt tunes to get you on the dance floor.
Since their formation in early 2008 the band have quickly developed a growing following at numerous folk clubs and festivals throughout the U.K.
As well as playing the traditional folk clubs and festivals the Homecoming String Band have pioneered a new kind of event, the Bluegrass Ceilidh. This is a world first and is guaranteed to add an original and energetic twist to any event.
