Philadelphia and Virginia based Coracree plays roots music from the heart, melding a mixture of Celtic, Old-Time, European and original music with an old and contemporary sound.

Featuring the playing of award winning fiddler and clawhammer banjo player Janie Rothfield, the silver throated singing (and bass playing) of Scotsman Allan Carr, multi-instrumentalist extra-ordinaire, Bill Quern, and the inventive and driving guitar of Sarah Gowan, Coracree sets the house on fire! With lively fiddle tunes, soulful Scottish and Appalachian ballads, great singing and harmonies, a bit of raucus southern Old Time and an occasional clog dance by guitarist Sarah Gowan, an evening with Coracree equals a fun evening of music, dance and humor!

Since 2010, Coracree has played at contra dances, concerts and festivals up and down the Eastern Seaboard, Canada, the Pacific Northwest and Scotland UK, spreading their unique and entertaining brand of Old and New folk music to audiences of all ages.
