Greasy String Band

The Greasy String Band has played for contra dances in Tallahassee, Gainesville, and at the Florida Folk Festival (FFF) for years. The band's playing is depicted by driving dance tunes, smooth fiddle playing by Jane Scott, upbeat clawhammer playing by Gordon Scott, and solid rhythm guitar by Drew Leslie whose been known to pick the tunes at top speed in unison with the Scotts. Gordon has won numerous ribbons at the annual banjo contest at the FFF playing on the main stage. Jane has won ribbons at the Florida State Fiddlers contest as well. The three band members work together at Gordon's String Music. Jane and Gordon recorded a CD with many of the dance tunes they play regularly called "Old Time Duets". Come on by the store at 1903 N.
