Six Dollar String Band

Six Dollar String Band captures the exuberant, communal, and unifying spirit inherent in Old Time music.

Location: Durango, CO
2016 MicroGrant Award: $1,000

In their hometown – the mountainous and musically diverse micropolitan of Durango, Colorado — they are widely regarded for their tight, driving, and passionate sound.  Six Dollar plans to release its next 13-15 track album this year, and will utilize a MicroGrant to fund the vinyl pressing of 200 copies.

Tony Holmquist :: fiddle
Stephen Sellers :: bass
Brendan Shafer :: banjo, guitar

Six Dollar is more than just a band that has learned songs written while Woodrow Wilson was in office. Members are experts on the style in a musical and historical sense, with the ability to tie the genre into more modern things. — Bryant Ligget /The Durango Herald, January 1, 2015
