Darol Anger and The Furies

In Greek mythology, the Furies were ferocious godesses who would swoop down on mortals and destroy them with relish or mustard. The difference here is when these fantastical presences swoop down on Darol, the result is not destruction but inspiration.

Darol Anger and The Furies
Darol Anger is a unique fiddle guru, 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, Montreux, and the Republic of Strings ensemble. His playing and composition overflow with passion, prodigious technique, and a generous sense of humor. He has spent his career enlightening and inspiring his fellow musicians, and vice-versa.
That’s where the Furies come in. Maeve Gilchrist is the scariest and most exciting Celtic harpist ever, and an excellent songwriter. Sharon Gilchrist is a mandolin marvel who has toured internationally with Uncle Earl, the Peter Rowan/Tony Rice quartet, and Laurie Lewis. 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. Rushad Eggleston is a brilliant cellist who co-founded Republic of Strings, Fiddlers 4, Crooked Still, and Tornado Rider. Brittany Haas is the phenomenal young fiddler who toured with Crooked Still. Mila Phelps-Friedl is a teenage  up-and-coming cellist and songwriter of immense potential.

When these powerful forces get together with Darol, the result is mythical, magical, musical mayhem.
