Abaca String Band

The Abaca String Band's debut album, 'Live From Chautauqua', and soon-to-be released 'Live From Chautauqua' Vol. II , represent not only what we sound like, but also gives the listener an idea of the broad range of repertoire that we perform.

The variety of composers and styles is always connected by the commentary from the stage and by the consistency of the instrumentation.
