American Strings brings renowned artists from around the U.S. to Corvallis and Oregon State University for an in-depth look at how and why stringed instruments play such a profound role in American music.

“I love the harmonies of the Shook Twins, the dreamlike songs that seem somehow permeated by the American Folk tradition, without actually being part of it. They make music that twines through your soul the way vines cover an abandoned shack in the woods.” – Neil Gaiman, New York Times – Best-Selling Author

Hosted by the GRAMMY Museum’s Bob Santelli the OSU College of Liberal Arts and the Majestic Theatre, the conversation, and performance that comprises each segment of American Strings makes for a one of a kind opportunity to appreciate and know better the great American music tradition.
