Artist Biography:
Tom & Annie's Caravan Band is a New England Barn Dance Band., Sometimes called Contra Dances, Kitchen Dances, or Old time Country Dances. All of which include Contras, Whole Set, Square and Circle dances. Tom has been calling these fun events for over 20 Years. We are available for Dances, Performances, Church and Group Events, Wedding Ceremonies and Receptions.

We play New England Fiddle tunes from the Scots-Irish, French Canadian, and Cape Breton traditions. These lively tunes, comprised of reels, jigs, and hornpipes, form our basic repertoire, but we've been known to include some Bluegrass and Cajun should the need arise.

Our instrumentation is varied. The fiddle is the lead instrument, with guitar, banjo, hammered dulcimer, and mandolin, also picking out melodies. The driving rhythms and lilting melodies are accentuated by the solid background of a stand up acoustic wash tub bass, and the bodhran, an Irish drum.
