23 String Band

Fiddler Scott Moore on crossing borders and crossing genres

Jun 22, 2012

Scott Moore has been to Ireland, Ecuador, Poland, Australia, Canada, China, as well as around the U.S. playing his violin. He lives in Louisville now and plays fiddle for The 23 String Band- who will be playing at ROMP in Owensboro next week. Rose Krzton-Presson spoke with Scott about crossing borders, crossing genres, and where he’s looking to go next with his instrument.

Louisville's 23 String Band describes their music as "bluegrass attack fueled by high-octane rock-n-roll energy and triple-distilled old timey roots." They're one of the bands performing later this month at Owensboro's ROMP festival. Rose Krzton-Presson spoke with 23's bass player T Martin Stam about this young group's efforts to teach others about this old time music.
