Canal Street String Band on YouTube

In their own words: "With three voices, fifty-five strings and a pair of cow bones, The Canal Street String Band puts a brand-new shine on some seriously fun old American music. Fiddle tunes....sea shanties....cowboy songs....canal ditties....mountain music....western swing...and originals too, with banjo, fiddle, twin mandolins, string bass, dobro, guitar, octave mandolin, assorted 'pocket' instruments, and three-part harmonies. ? The Buffalo trio, as seen at the Old Songs festival this spring, is Phil Banaszak, a New York State fiddle champion and member of the North American Fiddlers Hall of Fame; Dave Ruch on the mandolin, guitar, banjo, octave mandolin, bones, spoons, jaw harp "and probably some other things too ?; and Jim Whitford, a member of the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame, on string bass, guitar and Dobro.
