The Green River String Band is the collaboration of musicians Charlie Conant, Doug Reid and Eveline MacDougall. Guitarist Conant and banjo picker Reid first played together in the late 1970s as members of the bluegrass Black Horse String Band. Charlie Conant has developed a considerable talent on the slide resonator guitar through a stint with the Conway Traditions and as co-founder of Katie Clarke and the Green River Band.
Fiddle player Eveline MacDougall is founder and artistic director of the renowned Amandla Chorus, and has put her skills to work to blend meticulous 3-part harmonies into the Green River String Band's original and traditional compositions.
Charlie Conant adds award-winning songwriting ablilities. He finished among the top three winners in the Connecticut River Watershed Council's Songwriting Contest for the past two years.
