Northwest Native Pickers Anger, Phelps, Hargreaves, Corbett, Joliff and Jodziewicz re-unite for the holidays.
What better way for some of the country's best string musicians to celebrate the holidays than to go home and play some shows with family and friends?
Acoustic Music legend Darol Anger joins his singer-songwriter partner Emy Phelps in organizing some of the country's hottest young string musicians in the 2nd ANNUAL multigenerational musical show orbiting around the holidays, with some of Cascadia's finest pickers.
Award-winning fiddler Alex Hargreaves and his equally brilliant kid sister Tatiana, Joy Kills Sorrow alumni Wes Corbett (banjo) Yonder Mountain mandolinist Jake Joliff, teen cello-phenom Mila Phelps-Friedl, and the incredible bassist Ethan Jodziewicz –all Pacific Northwest Natives– will join forces. In addition to the super-hot picking, there will be no lack of glorious singing and great songs of the season.
December is a time when family and friends re-unite, and this series of shows will be a wonderful break from the holiday runaround. Darol's experience with holiday shows from Windham Hill through Newgrange to Yulegrass, his quirky humor, and genius for organizing large bands will be utilized at full bore. Special guests, family, and friends will undoubtedly make appearances.
