The Red Squirrel Chasers are four good friends whose diverse musical influences and interests all seamlessly merge into a new, but yet familiar sound. They had been playing dances together for nearly ten years when they decided to explore a shared interest in the musical territory that occupies that that hazy borderline between the old-time string band sounds of the 1920s-1930s and the lonesome bluegrass sounds that emerged in the 1940s. The results are spare melody lines, blended vocal and instrumental textures and a streamlined sound. Together, the Red Squirrel Chasers combine red hot fiddling, tight harmony singing, great material and a powerful band sound that skips along and soars effortlessly.

Red Squirrel Chasers are:

Stephanie Coleman – fiddle, vocals
Jim Collier – mandolin, vocals
Jim Nelson – guitar, vocals
Dedo Norris – string bass, vocals
