The Summit has earned a reputation up and down the west coast as an evening of epic proportions, each July uniting 3 generations of some of acoustic musics most creative artists, for a musical journey of bluegrass, old-time fiddle traditions, jazz, Celtic, and other world music, with many special guests and spontaneous collaborations.
Six-time Grand National Fiddle Champions and northern California natives Tashina and Tristan Clarridge have grown up in the company of these musicians, living and breathing music since the age of two when they got their first fiddles.
Tashina and I were privileged to grow up in an unusual way, which prepared us for the way this event unfolds. We were very connected as a family, and music was at the heart of it all; we'd sometimes drive 2500 miles to go meet some musicians and get a lesson and go to a fiddle camp, then wed backpack into the woods for weeks at a time and practice fiddles in our tipi where we lived on the side of a mountain. It was a really simple and beautiful way to grow up, and we want to offer to others something of what we've experienced says Tristan. This is a gathering of some of the musical friends we've made as we travel through life... This project isn't a business, it's about community. And we'll be sharing a good taste of that community in Etna, on July 9th.
