Mr Sun sets Fire In The Kitchen
North Madison Congregational Church 1271 Durham Rd. Madison, 06443
phone: (203) 668-3735
Through the years, the Fire In The Kitchen series has prided themselves on introducing some of the most accomplished young talent in the world to little Madison, Ct. Not really good players, but Grammy winning-blow-your-ears-off alternative string geniuses. The best of the best. Pure and simple. Accept no substitutes.
Well, it all had to start somewhere, and this just may be the M.V.P. guy who gets the trophy laid at his feet. Darol Anger, once hanging with the likes of Mike Marshall, David Grisman, Tony Rice, Stephane Grappelli and Vassar Clements, then becoming one of the founding fathers of the ground-breaking Turtle Island Quartet, has made a career out of finding other young talent and throwing them over his shoulder to the top of the ladder of musical brilliance. It’s time to give him his due, and with his new band Mr. Sun, it’s all fireworks. It’s music that’s at once smart, brilliant, exciting, funny, and inspiring.
