The Clayfoot Strutters

The CLAYFOOT STRUTTERS are a Vermont-based contra dance and party band whose specialty is fusing the modes and melodies of traditional American immigrant music, progressive harmonies from pop and modal jazz and hot dance-floor rhythms from the Afropop, Swing, Latin, Cajun and Zydeco worlds. As composers, arrangers and songwriters they are also actively contributing new repertoire to this emerging style. Founded in 1990 they have created a sensation at camps, community dances and festivals for their free-spirited jam-band approach to the jig-and-reel work of contra dance playing as well as their unparalleled ability with and affinity for the wide variety of couple dance grooves in demand by adventurous dancers coast to coast. Original members LEE BLACKWELL (drums, guitar and vocals), JEREMIAH McLANE (accordion and piano) and PETE SUTHERLAND (fiddle, piano, and vocals) are joined in the current incarnation of the STRUTTERS by guitar, piano and sax-man PETER DAVIS, banjo and flute player MARK ROBERTS and bassist HARRY ACETO.
