Alex Sturbaum is a one-of-a-kind performer. Steeped in musical traditions from both sides of the Atlantic, they are equally comfortable performing for dancers in a crowded grange hall, singing original songs at an intimate house concert, belting out sea shanties at a pub sing, or tearing through bluegrass standards at a festival. Alex’s music is rooted in a respect for the tradition and a deep, infectious love of playing. Originally from Cincinnati, OH, Alex has resided in western Washington since 2014, and performs solo as well as with the bands Countercurrent and the Waxwings. They also produce the Vashon Sessions project.
