Nic Gareiss and Allison de Groot
"Acclaimed dancer, ethnochoreologist, and queer theorist Nic Gareiss and old-time banjoist Allison de Groot combine timeless tunes and melodies with the surprisingly lyrical, musical, and jaw-droppingly deft steps of Irish, bluegrass, old-time, and otherwise vernacular rhythmic dance."
- Justin Hiltner, The Bluegrass Situation

Allison de Groot has been called "One of Canada's finest folk musicians" by CBC Q. She combines love for old-time music, technical skill and a creative approach to the banjo forming her own sound  unique and full of personality.  Her collaborations with Allison de Groot & Tatiana Hargreaves, Bruce Molskys trio Molsky's Mountain Drifters, The Goodbye Girls provide spaces to explore the role and depth of clawhammer banjo. Allison has toured all over the world with various groups, performing at events such as Newport Folk Festival, Celtic Connections, Rockygrass, Hardly Strictly, Winnipeg Folk Festival & T√łnder Festival. The music scene in her hometown of Winnipeg, Canada, immersion in Appalachian old-time communities, a performance degree at Berklee College of Music in Boston, and touring extensively throughout North America and Europe have all shaped her playing.

Named by Dance Magazine as one of 2019's "25 to Watch," dancer and dance researcher Nic Gareiss has been hailed by the New York Times for his "dexterous melding of Irish and Appalachian dance" and called "the most inventive and expressive step dancer on the scene by the Boston Herald. He re-imagines movement as a musical practice, recasting dance as medium that appeals to both eyes and ears. Originally from Michigan, Gareiss engages many percussive dance traditions, weaving together a dance technique facilitating his love of improvisation, traditional clog and step dance footwork vocabulary, and musical collaboration. He has concertized in sixteen countries for over ten years with many of the luminaries of traditional music and dance including The Chieftains, The Gloaming, Bruce Molsky, Sandy Silva, Ira Bernstein, Colin Dunne, Alasdair Fraser, Phil Wiggins, Liz Carroll, and Darol Anger. He has performed at London's Barbican Centre, the Irish National Concert Hall, the Munich Philharmonic, and the Kennedy Center. Nic holds degrees in Anthropology and Music from Central Michigan University and a MA in Ethnochoreology from the University of Limerick.
