with Tristan Clarridge and introducing Emily Mann
Tristan Clarridge is one of the most influential and brilliant string musicians ever to come out of the west coast. Before the age of 30 he has already been a 6-time Grand National Champion fiddler, performed all over the world as a member of Darol Anger’s Republic of Strings and the PopGrass phenomenon Crooked Still, the founder of the Chamber-grass group The Bee Eaters and, with his equally talented sister, helps to run various fiddle camps all up and down the West coast, inspiring and educating hundreds of young string musicians. His abilities on fiddle, cello, and other string instruments are legendary.
Fiddler Emily Mann developed an early interest in traditional music, particularly the old-time style of the Appalachian mountains. She grew up in Big Sur, CA and discovered the world of music camps where she met and studied with Anger, and many others. Now age 23, and comfortable in a range of musical styles, Emily stands as a musician of deep acuity, ably conveying tradition into the future.
