The Calico String Band was an acoustic San Francisco Bay area musical group which formed in 1998 and performed until Dec 2002. The musical style combined elements of ragtime, bluegrass, Americana, folk rock, blues and gypsy jazz. The result was an interesting original hybrid style of music which we called 'Blue American Rag'. Andrea Sanguine on stand up bass and vocal harmonies. David Lurey on acoustic rhythm guitar and vocals. Joe Rizzo on acoustic lead guitar, harmonica and vocals. Francis Mougne on banjo, mandolin and vocals. We also on occasion performed with guest musicians including Fletch Nielsen on piano and Russel Roe on mandolin.
