The Moxie Strings (formerly String Cheese)Band Profile
The Moxie Strings is the electrifying combination of fiddler Diana Ladio, and cellist, Alison Lynn. Their feel-good melodies and foot-stomping, rock-influenced rhythms put a fresh, enticing spin on Celtic and Americana music. Though rooted in tradition, The Moxi Strings offer listeners the unique opportunity to experience two of the world’s best-known instruments and oldest grenres through a young, progressive lens. Diana and Alison often join forces with dynamic drummer and world percussionist, Fritz McGirr, to create a high-energy instramental trio proven to captivate any audience. The Moxie Strings’ ear-catching originals and dance-worthy, traditional tunes have quickly made it one of Michigan’s most promising instrumental acts.
The Homestead is pleased to have The Moxie Strings back for a second year. For more information visit their website at www.themoxiestrings.com.
