Cascade Crossing has been active since 2006, and they have played up and down the west coast from Juneau to San Diego. They have a reputation for intense creativity, and a habit of energizing dance crowds. Cascade Crossing includes Lori Prime (fiddle), Sarah Goss (whistle, oboe), Rich Goss (guitar, percussion), and Carl Thor (piano). Wherever they play, Cascade Crossing lights up the dance hall with an exciting palette of musical colors and textures, from hard-driving reels to smooth, mysterious jigs and romantic waltzes.
