The Niagara String Band is a duo from Southern Ontario that specializes in traditional music. Although sometimes with guests, the band is primarily lead by Alex Andrews (24), with accompaniment from Shawn Fehlow (23). Performing a wide range of musical styles that were popularized in the early 20th century, they utilize a variety of instruments including guitars, upright bass, 5 and 6 string banjos, piano, mandolin, fiddle, and harmonica. With an eclectic repertoire drawn from old recordings and sheet music, they will play anything from reels, jigs and waltzes to ragtime and country blues. They have played in many cities, bars, festivals and weddings throughout Ontario.
