Violinist Ranger Sciacca began playing at the age of six. His sweet violin playing, sense of melody and daring improvisation are at the heart of the band’s sound. Through most of his teens, he divided his studies between fiddle tunes with Stuart Williams and classical improvisation with Alice Kanack. A chance encounter with a recording of jazz violin ignited Ranger’s interest in this genre.

With his father Michael Sciacca on rhythm guitar, he built a repertoire and played often through the 1990s at schools, dances, fairs and garden events. In addition to his father Michael, other band members include bassist Todd Houghton, percussionist Jeffrey Moose and Dave Stewart on the mandolin. Ranger and his father are descendants of Sicilian immigrants who played jazz in New York at the start of the 20th century.

Concerts are presented by the Edmonds Arts Commission on behalf of the Edmonds City Council and are accessible to persons with disabilities.

In the event of rain, the concert will be cancelled at 2:30 p.m.
