Carr Family Band



Grants Pass OR US

The Family Carr plays contemporary/traditional music with drive.  Kevin Carr and Josie Mendelsohn and their offspring Daniel and Molly Carr have a trunkful of  tunes and songs collected over the years in dance halls, festivals and along the byways of America,  Europe and  Quebec. The play with verve and passion and with a rare harmonic  and  melodic inventiveness that still pays deep respect to the sources of these timeless musical treasures. A Family Carr concert might include Galician  foliadas, muiñeiras and xotas, old time Appalachian fiddle breakdowns and southern ballads, Irish pipe tunes, Quebecois reels and gigues, spoons duets, as well as newly composed traditional tunes which are both in the style and in the groove.
