      It was really great! Darol and the gang were terrific. Its always fun to see what combination he's going to put together. One problem with the show was with the streaming. It kept freezing up. Another viewer suggested watching with low res and that worked till it froze again. After about mid show is seemed fine. Also, the first half hardly had any volume on the fiddles. The mic they used was only useful when Darol talked into it. By second half it was better.

Bio

In Greek mythology, the Furies were ferocious godlike avengers who would swoop down on mere mortals and destroy them with relish (or, in rare cases, mustard). The only difference here is that when these fantastically talented presences swoop down on Darol Anger, the result is not destruction but inspiration.

In Greek mythology, the Furies were ferocious godlike avengers who would swoop down on mere mortals and destroy them with relish (or, in rare cases, mustard). The only difference here is that when these fantastically talented presences swoop down on Darol Anger, the result is not destruction but inspiration.

Darol, as aficionados of string music know, is a flat-out fiddle guru, unique in his vast range and profound depth, who has spent the past three decades reinventing American string music to encompass his explorations of bluegrass, jazz, and musical traditions from around the world. The groups that he founded or co-founded include the David Grisman Quintet, the Turtle Island String Quartet, Psychograss, Montreux, and the Republic of Strings ensemble. His playing and composition overflow with passion, prodigious technique, and a great sense of humor. He has spent his career enlightening and inspiring his fellow musicians, and vice-versa.

That’s where the Furies come in. Rushad Eggleston is a brilliant improvisational cellist who has played with Republic of Strings, Fiddlers 4, Crooked Still, and Tornado Rider. Maeve Gilchrist is the scariest and most exciting Celtic harpist ever. Sharon Gilchrist is a mandolin marvel who has played with Uncle Earl, the Peter Rowan and Tony Rice quartet, and Laurie Lewis and the Right Hands. Emy Phelps is a remarkable vocalist and a star in the Pacific Northwest who put her career on hold to raise four kids and is now back in the game. When these four powerful forces get together with Darol, the result is mythical, magical, and downright fun.
