Coracree is one of the most heralded contra dance bands around and has played to enthusiastic dancers throughout the East Coast from Canada to Florida, at dance weekends in Philadelphia, Seattle, Pittsburgh and Austin Texas. The band melds a transatlantic mix of traditional Celtic, Old-time, European, and original music with a playful, improvisational style.

Coracree features the lively fiddling of Jane Rothfield, the driving swing of Bill Quern on tenor banjo, mandolin and melodeon, Sarah Gowan’s inventive guitar stylings, and the melodic and rhythmic stand-up bass playing of Allan Carr. Coracree's mult- instrumental, rhythmic, driving, groovy, jazzy music combineing with their unique connection with the dancers, makes for a fantastic dance experience all around!
