Interstate Express

The Barn

With their high energy approach to traditional American songs and dance music, Interstate Express shares their love of old stories and passion for the joy of a fiddle tune that drives like a Mercedes on the open road.

The music that developed in America is as diverse as the people who brought it there, from fast banjo and fiddle dance tunes to folk songs, early country, blues and old ballads, this trio plays it all.

As comfortable on a festival stage as a sweaty bar, the band was formed on a long drive from Tennessee to New Orleans and is the newest project of fiddler and singer Craig Judelman, who learned from and performed with some of the great American traditional musicians of the last 50 years. Currently based in Berlin, he is bringing this legacy to European audiences, telling stories and sharing his American culture that goes much deeper than fast food and baseball
