Big Chimney Barn Dance (USA)

Big Chimney Barn Dance is a powerful Alaskan Old Time and Bluegrass stringband specializing in a unique style of North Country Americana dance music.

Steeped in songs and the fiddle tradition of the hills of Southern Appalachia, the band honed their sound in the cabins found at the foot of the Chugach Mountains in Alaska. Big Chimney features fiddlers Danny Consenstein and Carter Bancroft, guitarist Nate Williamson, Jay Marvin on banjo, and Garren Volper on bass.

Big Chimney is an accomplished touring act with a history of sharing music in Ireland and Wales as well as playing extensively in Alaska, the Pacific Northwest, USA and for festivals like the Austin Stringband Festival in Austin, Texas. With a strong combination of driving dance tunes and memorable songs, Big Chimney is just as at home playing a square dance as they are a listening room concert or a raucous pub gig.
