Darol & Emy with Tristan Clarridge play a matinee in San Rafael, CA
1455 A E Francisco Blvd San Rafael, CA 94901
Darol Anger returns to the Valley of His People
Internationally reknowned fiddle player Darol Anger will return to play an intimate concert in an area which has deep emotional significance for him: San Rafael.
Anger was raised in Marin County and attended San Rafael High School (also home to many other talented musicians including film composer Mark Isham). Some of his most important formative musical experiences happened right in this neighborhood, at the historic Pepperland Theatre: his first Grateful Dead experience which also featured Janis Joplin, and a double-bill of the Youngbloods and an explosive band called SeaTrain, with a young Peter Rowan and fiddler Richard Greene, who sparked Darol’s fiddling career.
Now a professor at Boston’s Berklee College Of Music, Anger was a resident of the San Francisco Bay Area for 30 years and was a founding member of the David Grisman Quintet with Tony Rice, and released many recordings on the Windham Hill label with Barbabra Higbie, Mike Marshall, and his Turtle Island String Quartet.
