Putting the Swing in music across the genres- from  Western Swing and Vintage Country to Traditional Hot Jazz - Wilson String Band is a dynamic family group from Arizona. Their high energy show combines lively toe-tapping music with frequent instrument swapping between the band members and humorous family interplay. They perform nationwide at fairs, festivals, private concerts, and other venues.

Getting Ready 

Last week Andrew and I took a quick trip to Austin to bring our first load in preparation for moving. We had such an amazing time, saw some great music, ate some great food.... Back home again, and we have the kids pretty pumped up for this move! We all are anxious to get back there. But in the meantime, it is busy here in Arizona. Typical of the "Wilson Way", we are recording new songs that you will be able to download on our website soon! Also, with a new music school on the horizon and some classes this summer, we are starting work on some fiddle books that will be ready in the next week. Next up, see us in Salt Lake City, UT, and then Weiser. ID, for the National Old-Time Fiddle Contest-where Andrew is judging the twin fiddle division, entering the swing fiddle division, and the whole family is the Saturday night entertainment! Check out our schedule and blog for more information, and we can't wait to see you all this summer.

Goodbye, Arizona! 

The beautiful winter weather, the red rocks of the desert, the sweeping views of the mountains....we have enjoyed those things and so much more these past 3 winters! But, it is now time to move on to new adventures. We are packing up and leaving Arizona the beginning of June. We will be visiting the Northwest, to participate in the National Old Time Fiddle Contest in Weiser, ID, back home to Spokane for some catching up with friends and family, as well as some concerts and workshops, and them we will be heading to Austin, TX, to our new home base. We are very excited to be planning a new music school in the Austin area. We hope to see many of you this summer!

New Year, New Plans 

Lots of changes around our house! We have a studio set up in our dining room, and are churning out some new photos and videos. New music is being learned every day here, and the band is sounding good! We have shortened our band name to Wilson String Band, and you will notice some new things going on here on the website. Stay tuned for more!
 We are booking now for summer 2015, and the winter 2015-2016 season. We will be traveling across the northern US from June-August, and then head back through the Southeast and Texas/Missouri/Arkansas area for September and October. If you would like to hear us play in your hometown, then send us a message or give us a call!Contact Us
