Hillbillies From Mars
The Hillbillies From Mars have been rocking the contradance scene in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1982. And in 2013, they rocked the Internet, playing the music for Google's Thanksgiving doodle.

The Hillbillies combine their love and dedication to Celtic and American traditional fiddle music with a healthy dose of their own "folk roots" of rock 'n' roll, swing, Latin and African beats, forging a new tradition of dance music.
