American Roots Ensemble

Every year, the American Roots Ensemble dives into the expanse of "roots" music in North America and follows different paths through this country's musical traditions, including folk songs and fiddle tunes, spiritual music, a cappella singing, body percussion and flatfooting, honky tonk and juke joint music, jug band music, and much more.

Cobra Ensemble
