Sweater Weather String Band play an energetic blend of old-time, western swing and Celtic styles, with a sound that has been compared to "the frolicking of sheep before a thunderstorm."
We formed at the 2018 Subdued Stringboard Jamboree, when Joey (fiddle) and Will (guitar and vox), already playing as a duo, started jamming with Richard (banjo) and Adam (percussion). We quickly picked up momentum, along with Collin (mandolin) and Colin (bass), and have spent the last year playing everything from house shows to boat shows to bars to square dances to folk fests to raves, all around the Salish Sea.
This winter, we're recording an EP and going on tour. If you're walking around your town and hear whooping, stomping, and bleating, and smell rosin, cinnamon, and lanolin, you might have found us.
