Alexandria, Virginia 22314

The Dead Sea Squirrels is an engaging and versatile band that plays the string band music of the American South, both instrumental and vocal, a rich stew of archaic British transplanted ballads; haunting modal tunes and songs, African-rooted rhythms and blues; Cajun waltzes two-steps; Celtic-influenced guitar nuances; and old-time fiddling – driving and stately, bouncy, quirky and often eerily beautiful.

Members of the band consist of Cathy Mason on fiddle and mandolin, Craig Edwards on fiddle, banjo, mandolin and vocals, and Henry Yoshimura on guitar. and vocals. They have played and toured widely on the East Coast, and have rocked the house at dance and performance venues including Concord MA ), Glen Echo, MD, Asheville, NC, Atlanta, GA, River Falls, SC, and many others, as well as dance and music weekends and festivals.
