Keep It In The Fam Holiday Homecoming: Darol & Emy & Fiends
Seattle, Olympia, Portland, Eugene
with the Cascadia All-Stars:
Darol Anger, Emy Phelps, Alex and Tatiana Hargreaves, Wes Corbett, Jake Joliff, Mila Phelps-Friedl
DEC 19-22 , Seattle, Olympia, Portland, Eugene
Northwest Native Pickers Anger, Phelps, Hargreaves, Corbett, Joliff 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 regional star Emy Phelps in organizing some of the country's hottest young string musicians in a multigenerational musical show orbiting around the holidays, with some of Cascadia's finest pickers.
Award-winning fiddler Alex Hargreaves and his equally brilliant little sister Tatiana, teen cello-phenom Mila Phelps-Friedl, Joy Kills Sorrow members Wes Corbett (banjo) and Jake Joliff (mandolin) –all Oregon 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.
