Inner Fire District was founded in Burlington, Vermont in 2006 by accordionist/singer David Symons and guitarist/accordionist/whistler Tim Lang, and now includes Jennie Lavine on clarinet, John Thompson-Figueroa on upright bass and tuba, and Chris Schroth on drums. IFD performs a genre-eluding compound of Yiddish and Balkan folk, intricate original compositions, old revolutionary songs, and whatever else tickles their fancy. The members of Inner Fire District currently live in Vermont, Louisiana, New York, and Pennsylvania. In April 2018, the band finally recorded a debut album, There Will Be Singing About The Dark Times.
