ABOUT

Candy Floss band was created in 2004 and since the beginning there were few instrumental and personal changes.

The founding members are songwriter and banjo player Simona Schmidtova and bass player Anton Naroda.

During the past couple years band had to chance cooperate with some great instumentalist and singers of the slovak "young bluegrass generation" including Filip Bato, Michal Kováč, Peter Meciar, Vlado Krizan, Boris Krizan and Marta Halusova.

The band started current line up with the arrival of guitarist Dusan Hronec, mandolinist Michal Barok (both with Anton were Meantime band members in the past) and most importantly the singer Patricia Pivoluskova. The band also added much more original songs to their repertoire.

The newest member of the band is fiddler Martin Burza.

The repertoire consists mostly of original songs and instrumentals in contemporary bluegrass style inspired by bluegrass artist like Alison Krauss, Blue Highway and many others.

In 2011 the band released first CD with 13 songs (including 12 originals written by band members).

In 2012 Candy Floss won 3rd place at European bluegrass band contest in La Roche Bluegrass festival France.
