The Tremperskill Boys are an old time string band whose core repertoire comes from fiddle tunes now native to the Catskill Mountains. One hundred or more years ago, the Irish and Scottish farmers and laborers of the Catskill Mountains produced a distinctive style of fiddling. Their sound could be described as hard driving northern Appalachian music. This is the music now interpreted by the Tremperskill Boys. Their sound is zestful, hard driving, foot tapping, and energetic, making sitting difficult and square and contra dancers happy. With humor they admit to being neither all strings nor all boys, which is true, but not foreseen at the bands’ beginning.
The Tremperskill Boys come from varied occupations. Each member brings a unique element that blends into an acoustic ensemble with a sound that in turn might seem to come from an Irish Pub, a back hollow of West Virginia, or an old Delaware County Grange Hall.

The Tremperskill Boys played at our cocktail reception in the Catskills and their celtic inspired folk music couldn't have been more perfect for our venue. I have wonderful memories and photos dancing with my husband and family!
