Quotes & Highlights

“Darol Anger is the quintessential improvising violinist.” —CBS Sunday Morning
“Darol is one of those players who benefits from not being pigeonholed. I have always loved Darol’s approach to music – the soulful qualities of his playing … an appreciation for the roots of things.” —Mark O’Connor

Description

It has been said that Darol Anger is to the fiddle what Bela Fleck is to the banjo – a stylistic adventurer that brings new life to the music.

Irvine Barclay Theatre is honored to have Darol making his third appearance at the theatre. You may have seen him at the Barclay with the Turtle Island String Quartet or with Fiddlers 4, or at one of his many other performances with Psychograss – or with great players such as Bela Fleck, Mike Marshall, Michael Doucet or Mark O’Connor.

Darol is now touring with his latest string band, The Republic of Strings, with some of the hottest young talent performing anywhere today. Their new cd Generation Nation is getting a lot of buzz and critical acclaim.

If you’ve not heard Darol Anger play, this is an opportunity that shouldn’t be missed – great musicianship with a lively sense of fun. One of those laid back evenings that will keep you tapping your foot and smiling through the night.
