American String Band

American String Band is an ensemble dedicated to developing a repertoire of fiddle music and song to share on and off campus.

Lewiston being the heavily Franco-American community that it is, the traditional French-Canadian fiddle music of this area is central to our tune list, which also delves into Irish, bluegrass and old-time dance music and song, and all other music our various members bring to the table. Fiddles are especially wanted, while all other melodic and percussive instruments are also encouraged to join. Email Eli Gilbert, director at to set up an audition.

Feel free to contact Eli if you have any further questions regarding American String Band.
