The Golden Griffon Stringtet has been performing since 1992 at cultural and historic events including the Ohio Renaissance Festival, the national convention of Abraham Lincoln Presenters, the Windham, New York Civil War Music Heritage Gathering, New Year's Eve First Night celebrations in Birmingham, Port Huron and Ypsilanti, the Ypsilanti Heritage Festival, the Port Huron Thomas Edison Festival, the Northville Victorian Festival Ball, the Clinton Fall Festival, the Henry Ford Community College production of "The Grapes of Wrath," and the Greenfield Village re-dedication of Henry Ford's birthplace as well as numerous weddings, contra dances, Civil War re-enactment dances, festivals and community events throughout Michigan and Ohio.

The music we play is generally classified as traditional dance music, meaning square and contra dance tunes. Our repertoire includes traditional jigs, reels, waltzes and airs from Irish, French-Canadian, New England, and Southern/Old Time sources, Civil War tunes, traditional Michigan dance tunes, contemporary dance tunes written in the traditional style and a few contemporary pop melodies that we have corrupted into contra dance tunes. We can also play Christmas and religious music when appropriate.

Members of our band have been recognized with awards from the National Federation of Music Clubs, the Aurora Borealis Music Association, the Michigan State Championship Old-time Fiddlers Contest, the Nebraska ASTA Fiddle Tune Composition Contest and the Hetzler's Fakebook Fiddle Contest.
