The Oldtime String band was originally formed as a musical backdrop to a documentary about the cow-painter, Ruud Spil. Both the musicians and the audience enjoyed it so much that the band is now on a stampede.
The Oldtime Stringband not only plays Bluegrass and Old-Time music but is also inspired by American folk music from the 1940’s and modern music with an Old-Time feel.
The Oldtime Stringband is:
Shelly O’Day – Vocals, guitar, autoharp, Cajun-triangle
Ton Knol – Guitar, vocals
Ruud Spil – Banjo, vocals
Nout Grupstra – Cajun Accordion, fiddle, vocals, singing saw
