Folk Dance Music From All Over

Allspice has been playing for Seattle area folkdancers for 36 years. The band plays folkdance music from many different countries. Allspice has performed regularly at Northwest Folklife Festival participatory dances, as well as many other venues such as Skandia Midsommarfest and Expo 86 in Vancouver, Canada. The band features "lots of fiddles" plus accordion, guitar, and bass, and members also double on other instruments as musical styles dictate.
