Description

Darol Anger and the Furies     Fiddler and string artists extraoridnaire!

Exceptional among modern fiddlers for his versatility and depth, Darol Anger has helped drive the evolution of the contemporary string band through his involvement with numerous pathbreaking ensembles such as his Republic Of Strings, the Turtle Island String Quartet, the David Grisman Quintet, Montreux, the Duo and other ensembles. Today Darol can be heard on NPR's "Car Talk" theme every week, along with Earl Scruggs, David Grisman and Tony Rice. He has recorded and produced scores of important recordings since 1977, is a MacDowell and UCross Fellow, and has received numerous composers' residencies and grants. He is a featured soloist on dozens of recordings and motion picture soundtracks.

Darol, as aficionados of string music know, is a flat-out fiddle guru, unique in his vast range and profound depth, who has spent the past three decades reinventing American string music to encompass his explorations of bluegrass, jazz, and musical traditions from around the world. The groups that he founded or co-founded include the David Grisman Quintet, the Turtle Island String Quartet, Psychograss, Montreux, and the Republic of Strings ensemble. His playing and composition overflow with passion, prodigious technique, and a great sense of humor. He has spent his career enlightening and inspiring his fellow musicians, and vice-versa.

That’s where the Furies come in. Rushad Eggleston is a brilliant improvisational cellist who has played with Republic of Strings, Fiddlers 4, Crooked Still, and Tornado Rider. Maeve Gilchrist is the scariest and most exciting Celtic harpist ever. Sharon Gilchrist is a mandolin marvel who has played with Uncle Earl, the Peter Rowan and Tony Rice quartet, and Laurie Lewis and the Right Hands. Emy Phelps is a remarkable vocalist and a star in the Pacific Northwest who put her career on hold to raise four kids and is now back in the game. When these four powerful forces get together with Darol, the result is mythical, magical, and downright fun.
