Nick Maroussis

Greek Strings

Nick Maroussis is a musician based out of Seattle, Washington, where he grew up playing strings in various rock bands in the greater Seattle area. His involvement in the Greek community and lifelong participation in the dance program at St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church ultimately steered his musical interest into the realm of Greek and Balkan folk music. In 2008, Nick joined Dromeno, a folk music ensemble led by Balkan music veterans Ruth Hunter and Christos Govetas.

Nick has dedicated himself to the musical traditions of Greece, focusing primarily on the laouto (Greek lute), bouzouki, and guitar. Nick has performed at a wide array of dance symposiums, concerts, workshops, and parties around the U.S., Canada, and Greece as a part of Seattle-based bands Dromeno, Palamidhi, and Pasatempo Rebetika.
