Find out how the StringRays knew each other before they became a band. Hear how old-time fiddle music is alive and well with innovative bands like the StringsRays. Guitarist Max Newman grew up in Fairbanks going to contradances so it's a treat to hear him bring this dance band here to Alaska Live!

Local contra dance band, The Swing Dogs shared a couple of original waltzes plus wonderful and uniquely arranged medleys. Many different flavors seep into their style from New England Contra Dance to Middle Eastern melodies, this four-piece band is well worth a listen and a dance around the living room.
