The Monroe Street Band includes Jane Scott (fiddle, vocals), Gordon Scott (mandolin, banjo, vocals), and Drew Leslie (guitar). Jane has been fiddling since the 1980’s and directed the FSU Irish Ensemble for seven years. Gordon began playing music in Kentucky in the 1950’s and played with J.D. Crowe and Doyle Lawson in the 1960’s in the Kentucky Mountain Boys. Both Jane and Gordon are active in the Tallahassee music scene playing old-time dances, Irish sessions, and Bluegrass events. Drew Leslie has been playing guitar with Jane and Gordon in the Greasy String Band and the Monroe Street Band for the last ten years. Monroe Street is firmly rooted in traditional southern music and features breakdowns, waltzes, and country duet singing.
