Sligo Creek Stompers play a raucous but refined blend of traditional roots music: Appalachian & Midwestern old time and bluegrass, New Orleans ragtime and dixieland,
haunted Irish fiddle tunes and gypsy swing. Inspired by scratchy 78 rpm records, contra dancing and a good bottle of whiskey the Stompers are keeping the flame of American stringband music alive in the Washington, DC area.
Jonathan James is a traditional folk guitarist from Washington DC. Playing out and about professionally since he was 17 years old, he has traveled all over the country with his music. Celtic, Americana, traditional instrumental tunes, and loud pub songs have all made a way into unique sound.
Kate Moran’s music ranges from pop/rock and a little funk with a bit of soul to round out the sound! Her first CD, “On the Avenue,” produced by Paul Ottinger (Virginia Coalition), is a collection of songs that they co-wrote. According to Moran, “Every experience we have, we learn something from, and I definitely get a lot of my lyrics and my thoughts from feelings that I have, so it all comes from a true place.”
