TIGER MAPLE STRING BAND
Tiger Maple String Band is an energetic collection of talented musicians dedicated to continuing traditional and original old time music. Residing in Northwest Pennsylvania, our rural setting gives plenty of inspiration towards the continuance of acoustic music.

The sound of Tiger Maple String Band has rich historical and cultural values, Beautiful harmonies, Hot Old Time Fiddling and full body richness that only acoustic instruments and clear vocals can bring. The band draws its inspiration from a variety of different musical directions. The main source of inspiration is old time Appalachian tunes. Fiddle tunes, mountain ballads, murder ballads, coal mining songs and beautiful originals make up a set that leaves a lasting impression on their audience and folks walk away with big smiles and a good feeling of friendship and love.
