THE BEE EATERS AND SEAN WATKINS
Join me on the Inverness Ridge for a powerful evening of original music from Grand National Fiddle champions The Bee Eaters with Tashina and Tristan Clarridge and Hammer and dulcimer virtuoso Simon Chrisman, and, Grammy Artist Nickel Creek founder Sean Watkins.
THE BEE EATERS
Grand National Fiddle Champion Tashina Clarridge has toured with Mark OConnor, Tony Trischka, and Laurie Lewis and performed at Carnegie Hall as a part of MacArthur Fellow/Grammy-winning bassist Edgar Meyers Young Artists program.
Multi-instrumentalist brother Tristan Clarridge is a 5-time Grand National Fiddle Champion and a pioneering cellist, synthesizing traditional folk influences with rhythmic vocabulary from jazz, rock and pop music, and leading a revolution among adventurous young cellists throughout the country. His inventive virtuosic touch and sophisticated rhythmic sensibilities are redefining the instrument and earning the attention of musicians from all over the world. He has toured the world with bluegrass/nu-folk sensation Crooked Still and Darol Angers Republic of Strings, as well as Mike Marshall, Bruce Molsky and Cape Breton fiddle phenomenon Natalie MacMaster.
Hammer dulcimer wizard Simon Chrisman brings a whole new approach to an instrument that has previously been thought to have limited range and technique.
It is a joy to hear both the exploration of this music and the grounding of it simultaneously. Also, I love the emphasis on the simple beauty of the acoustic instruments.
(3-time Grammy-winning composer/bassist/MacArthur Fellow)
The Bee Eaters are the instrumental cream of the brand new string nation.

The groundbreaking trio's platinum-selling albums earned them a Grammy Award and the respect of musicians and listeners everywhere.
His newest release What to Fear is a powerfully honest and insightful lyrical and musical statement....
