In Greek mythology, the Furies were ferocious godlike avengers who would swoop down on mere mortals and destroy them with relish or mustard. The only difference here is that when these fantastically talented presences swoop down on Darol Anger, the result is not destruction, but inspiration.
Darol Anger is a fiddle guru, unique in his vast range and depth, who spent three decades reinventing American string music to encompass his explorations of bluegrass, jazz, and music from around the world. The groups that he founded or co-founded include the David Grisman Quintet, the Turtle Island String Quartet, Psychograss, The Montreux Band, and the Republic of Strings ensemble. He has worked closely with musical greats such as Tony Rice, Stephane Grappelli, Dr. Billy Taylor, Bill Frisell, Jerry Douglas, Mark O’Connor, Earl Scruggs, Bela Fleck, Edgar Meyer, Mike Marshall, Danny Barnes, Barbara Higbie, and many many more.
