Summer String Summit 2009
Hosted by 6 time Grand National Fiddle Champions Tristan and Tashina Clarridge, and featuring:
and many more!
This show is absolutely the dream show of the year for anybody interested in acoustic music, strings, or fiddling.  Ive watched these young artists grow up.  They are the future, but theyre happening right now. Bring your kids and watch their ears grow big and their eyeballs pop.
-Fiddle legend Darol Anger
Grammy nominated fiddler/composer Darol Anger was a founding member of the David Grisman Quintet, the Turtle Island String Quartet, Psychograss, and his Republic of Strings. His ideas and sound has reshaped fiddling all over the globe, inspiring 3 generations of players. He can be heard on NPRs Car Talk every week, with Earl Scruggs, Tony Rice, and David Grisman.
Bilingual singer/songwriter and banjoist Abigail Washburn is "a daring, definite talent who's feel for the folk idiom results in moving material" says the Wall Street Journal.  Her band The Sparrow Quartet, featuring 10 time Grammy winner Bela Fleck, an otherworldly amalgam of Appalachian roots music and Chinese folkloric tunes has toured all over the US and China.  Abigail was a member of the old-time stringband Uncle Earl whose latest CD was produced by John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin.
Vibrant young cellist and Julliard graduate Natalie Haas tours the world with renowned Scottish fiddler Alasdair Fraser - their CD was awarded Best Album of the Year in the Scots Trad. Music Awards.  She has also toured with Mark O'Connor.
"Haas can make her instrument sound like the drone of a hurdy-gurdy, the jangle of a guitar, or the thump of a string bass, and she can carry the tune of fast jigs and reels as well."  ~Robert Dawson Scott, - The Times
Phenomenal fiddler Brittany Haas tours with Crooked Still and Darol Anger.  She has performed with Steve Martin on The Ellen Degeneres Show, The Late Show with David Letterman, and Saturday Night Live.
"Brittany is a joy to listen to and her style just makes you feel happy."  
-Natalie MacMaster
US National Scottish Fiddle Champion and brilliant jazz violinist Jeremy Kittel holds a Masters in Jazz Performance from Manhattan School of Music.  A member of the Grammy winning Turtle Island Quartet and the Republic Of Strings, he has appeared at the Kennedy Center, and on A Prairie Home Companion.  
"Jeremy is an excellent musician."  -Chick Corea
Jazz Violin Cult Genius & Columbia recording artist Billy Contreras has appeared on the Conan O'Brien show, & has recorded with Willie Nelson.
The Bee Eaters features hammered dulcimer wizard Simon Chrisman and banjo phenomenon Wesley Corbett with brother-sister fiddle duo (and northern CA state favorites) Tristan and Tashina Clarridge.
