Darol Anger

Fiddler Darol Anger first burst onto the tradition-centered music scene when he joined the David Grisman Quintet in the mid-'70s (hear Grisman discuss the early days of the DGQ in this month's Extras). His work with the Turtle Island String Quartet further solidified his reputation for virtuosity and experimentation. His new project, Darol Anger's Republic of Strings, brings together generations of string players and runs the gamut of improvisational jazz and tradition-based music to create a unique, high-energy sound. This Live from Folk Alley (recorded by Cousin Jimmy Wilson at the Kent Stage in May) features Anger, pioneering folk guitarist Scott Nygaard and Tristan Clarridge on cello, who are joined by guest fiddler Sara Watkins from Nickel Creek for an hour that stretches the bounds of string music.
